BRYAN, Texas – The Aggieland Art Trail is a self-guided showcase of museums, galleries, art restaurants, murals, and sculpture in Brazos County. Starting at 7 a.m. on Saturday, September 11 at the POV Coffee House at the Stella Hotel, anyone can participate in this unique and family-friendly art exhibition.
This new event was created by the Société des arts visuels.
“We wrote a grant and received money that is funded by the arts council,” said Visual Art Society B / CS advertising volunteer Mindy Austin, “It’s supported by both cities [Bryan and College Station]. “
Visual Arts Society President Dr. Carol Fox Henrichs said the amount of art available throughout the community is incredible.
“If it’s [art] not on your radar every day, this is the perfect opportunity to get out there and see what we [Brazos County] have, ”said Dr. Henrichs.
