Fun Family Picture Location!
If you’re looking for a backdrop for incredible pictures, the Houston color wall is it! Created by the minds behind Houston’s Sugar & Cloth, your family photos are about to get a whole lot more colorful.
Here’s what you’ll find when you arrive: the side of a giant building covered in solid wide stripes in shades of orange, yellow, green, blue, red and pink. Plus, the ground is painted in colors that correspond to the stripes. The result is spectacular and lively.
Located in Houston’s East Downtown (EaDo) neighborhood, free parking is right across the street from the color wall. The address is 3302 Canal Street, Houston. As you and your family are taking your beautiful photos, just remember that this spot sits on a relatively busy street. That said, be sure to keep an eye on your little runners.
Once you’ve gotten your fill at the color wall, stick around and discover the neighborhood. The area is still being developed and renovated, but hidden within it are gems like the Mickey Leland Memorial Park, another great backdrop for your family photos located a mere 10 minutes from the color wall. And when you’re hungry, plenty of restaurants and bakeries are in the neighborhood.
Whether you take pictures with your cell phone or you have a professional photographer tag along with you to the color wall, your photos are all but guaranteed to turn out remarkable. If you’re planning on posting your images from the color wall of Houston to social media or you’d like to see other people’s photos, use the hashtag #sugarandclothcolorwall.
