A Museum Full of Masterpieces in Houston
There’s a lot more to a work of art than the materials that it’s made of, whether it’s oil brushed on canvas, clay shaped, metal molded, or marble chipped, Every artwork has a story behind it, an interpretation of the world through the creator’s eyes, a testament to the culture and history of the time-frame in which they came into being. An art gallery is a visual step into the past, and our luxury apartments at Alexan Southside Place make it easy to explore the best galleries and museums in Houston.
