Support for the arts is essential to building strong and inclusive societies, and Avenue has a tradition of promoting the arts, culture, and historic preservation in the communities we serve.

Art on the Avenue, Avenue’s annual fundraising event for over 20 years, is Houston’s largest silent art auction, featuring over 250 local artists each year.

Avenue always seeks opportunities to weave artwork and cultural events into our community building and engagement programming.

Avenue has been instrumental in revitalizing the former industrial warehousing area now known as the Washington Avenue Arts District.  

Avenue supports historic preservation which strengthens pride of place and connects us, not only to each other, but to past generations who have paved the way for us.
