Baytown Sculpture Trail
Walking down Texas Avenue has been transformed into the latest art display in Baytown. The Sculpture Trail is a mix of 20 unique statues, featuring artists from across the country and Canada, who drove thousands of miles to bring their artwork to Town Square.
Visitors may take a self-guided tour of the sculptures year round. This is a free, outdoor exhibit. The current sculptures are on display until March of 2023 when new pieces will take their spot.

The Art Gallery building, home to the Art League of Baytown, features the largest mural we currently have in Baytown. This mural wraps from the front of the building and down the west wall. The artist used a trompe l’oeil painting style, which is French for “deceive the eye”. This mural takes a flat wall and makes it seem as if you are looking right into an art gallery! Other portions of the mural feature Art Deco style flares that reflect the original architecture of the building.
Running Cabinet Mini Mural
This is was the first of Baytown's mini mural traffic cabinets. All of the cabinet are created with artwork digitally submitted by Baytown and Texas artists and then printed to vinyl wraps and placed on the cabinets. This cabinet is located at the corner of Emmett Hutto and Baker Road as was created by local artist Sheree Cardwell.
Cruisin W Texas Avenue Mural
The “Cruisin W Texas Avenue” mural is painted on the side of Bay Area Auto Gallery which is near Baytown’s historic oak tree that still stands in the middle of Texas Avenue today.

Promise Center Mural
This mural is located on the side of the Promise Center of Baytown (2609 Market Street), and emphasizes their dedication to education, diversity, and a promise of the future of the youth in Baytown. Jessica Rice roughed a hurricane and sweltering summer heat to bring this mural to life.
