CIVIC PRIDE THROUGH CIVIC ART
UP Art Studio is a Houston, Texas-based design-house that facilitates art and design projects for urban and contemporary artists, communities, corporations, and municipalities. The studio’s mission is Civic Pride through Civic Art, and they work on projects that educate, move and engage communities through public art.
UP Art Studio is a for-profit organization with a huge focus on non-profit projects, via a fiscal Sponsorship agreement with Fresh Arts (donations to many of its projects are tax-deductible). UP Art Studio specializes in public art projects, mural and art commissions, design services, project management, event planning, and artist collaborations.
UP Art Studio initiated an award-winning Mini Murals project, where they take traffic signal control cabinets and convert them into works of art, garnering contracts with the 4th largest city, City of Houston, and other regional municipalities including the state Capitol of Austin, Texas. They have also worked on large-scale mural projects in the U.S.
UP Art Studio was founded in 2012 by Noah and Elia Quiles, a husband and wife team passionate about public art. For more info: http://www.upartstudio.org.
