Aggieland Art Trail to showcase the colorful and creative side of Brazos Valley

This new event was created by the Visual Arts Society

BRYAN, Texas — The Aggieland Art Trail is a self-guided showcase of museums, galleries, restaurants with art, murals and sculptures in Brazos County. Starting at 7:00 a.m. Saturday, September 11 at POV Coffee house at the Stella Hotel, anyone can join in on this family-friendly and unique art show.

This new event was created by the Visual Arts Society.

“We wrote a grant and received money that is funded through the art council,” Publicity volunteer Visual Art Society B/CS Mindy Austin said, “It’s supported by both city’s [Bryan and College Station].”

President of the Visual Arts Society Dr. Carol Fox Henrichs said it’s amazing how much art is available throughout the community.

“If it’s [art] not on your radar every day, this is the perfect opportunity to get out and see what we [Brazos County] have,” Dr. Henrichs said.
