 Welcome Artist Len Kowitz and "Driving Houston"

Digital photographic technology has created opportunities to make photographs in ways that were difficult or impossible with the analog silver process.

Having grown up in Detroit, the Motor City, Mr. Kowitz has lived with the love of driving since before he was legally allowed to.  Moving to Houston in 1968, did nothing to diminish that passion.

Mr. Kowitz finds the City of Houston to be one of the most exciting cities a driver can experience.  The excitement of the drive can make it difficult to appreciate the beauty for the unfolding scene in front of the driver.  These photographs are an attempt to capture a small piece of that beauty.

About the City Hall Art Program

The City of Bunker Hill Village has been featuring local artists on the walls of City Hall for over 15 years. Former Mayor Bill Marshall had called his friend, Susan Jackson to "come and look at these walls." The Mayor felt the plain white walls could be used to showcase local artists. He asked is Susan thought there were enough artists to make it work and then asked Susan if she would take on the project. Susan agreed and since then, the project has been a great success. Art is changed every 3 months.

Those with City Hall business as well as Municipal Court attendees have been surprised and entertained by the work. "It's a win-win! We love having the artwork and appreciate our local artists sharing their talents and helping us decorate City Hall," says City Administrator Karen Glynn. She adds, " This is a great program and I so appreciate the vision of former Mayor Bill Marshall and the efforts of Susan Jackson for making this happen for the past 10 years."

Artists can leave their contact information with the City Hall office staff; any visitor can contact the artist personally if interested in purchasing a piece. Anyone interested in displaying their artwork can contact Susan Jackson at sljstudios.com.
