McGowen Station

McGowen Station Art 

The artistic concept for this station is an interpretation of the look and feel of the physical landscape of Midtown Houston. It is not an exact representation, but rather a reflection of the character of the neighborhood: a harmonious blend of the residential, the commercial and the institutional. The columns are clad with panels depicting the various characteristics of buildings in Midtown. The railings exhibit an outline of the Midtown cityscape, with the same motif echoed in colored pavers along the length of the platform. The canopy design uses glass in patterns drawn from design elements used in the Third Ward area's historically significant mansions.
