There’s a new major public art project in Houston. The median for several blocks around Ninfa’s on Navigation Street in the East End neighborhood has been transformed into a promenade of sorts, full of art and interesting solar lighting.

Houston Public Media’s Ernie Manouse visited the Navigation Street Esplanade to find out more. He speaks with Greater East End Management District president Diane Schenke, and Anthony Shumate – an artist who contributed to the project.

To see more on the public art at the Navigation Street Esplanade – tune in to Arts InSight Oct. 17 at 7 p.m. on Houston PBS.
