Baytown Sculpture Trail

Walking down Texas Avenue has been transformed into the latest art display in Baytown. The Sculpture Trail is a mix of 25 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 April of 2024 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.
