“Hope for a greener future” is a mural that pays tribute to “affordable and clean energy.” As the 4th largest city in the United States, Houston uses a lot of power. This mural represents Houston’s dedication to alternate energy sources, and Houston commitment to move beyond fossil fuel to renewable energies. In fact, the City of Houston annually purchases more renewable energy than any other American municipality. You can hear Mayor Turner tell you more in the app Behind The Wall. This mural, created by artist Carlos Alberto and curated by Street Art for Mankind (SAM), is an ode to Houston’s flourishing ecosystems, reflecting the importance of Green Energies and their crucial role in the creation of a sustainable future in which technology works in harmony with nature. This vision includes solar panels, windmills, and modern hydroelectric wheel – thanks to this technology, clean energy and nature coexist and thrive.
You can visit this mural on the corner of Dallas and Fannin St near McCormick & Schmicks! The Greenstreet mural will come to life in actual augmented reality by the end of 2022.
Houston “Big Art, Bigger Change” Murals is an unprecedented series of 9 large murals curated by Street Art for Mankind and created by prominent international and local artists to amplify awareness on social and environmental issues in Houston and beyond. This series is made possible thanks to a partnership with Downtown Houston and TotalEnergies and the support of the City of Houston and Harris County. The themes chosen for each mural are inspired by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, the diversity of the local community and the drive of local people and organizations who make a difference in Houston and around the world. This outdoor museum comes to life with the app Behind The Wall, as people, with a simple scan of the mural or its picture, will have the opportunity to learn more about the inspiration behind each mural starting October 15th, 2022.
