A 20’x8’ interactive shipping container painted by Houston-based artist DUAL is accessible on both gamedays and non-gamedays on Crawford Street. The artist, DUAL, stands for the conflict between “street art” and “fine” art, between freeway burners and gallery exhibitions, between mass recognition and total anonymity. His bold lines and fresh colors are a break from the everyday monotony of city life – a taste of urban subculture, whether you asked for it or not.

An 8’x8’ mobile mural wall that was painted at the ALDS Celebration party on Oct. 13 will also be on display at all home games and watch parties on Crawford Street. This mobile mural wall, painted by Houston based artist, Sylvia Blanco (@blanco_arte on Instagram), is to celebrate the ALDS win.
