WELCOME TO THE

5TH WARD CULTURAL ARTS DISTRICT

 

Houston’s Historic 5th Ward community is one large masterpiece. It is a place where art is a way of living, from its food, music, and sculpture; to its historic buildings and gathering spaces like the Deluxe Theater; to its iconic stoops, its language and its corner jam sessions. 5th Ward's Lyons Avenue Cultural Arts District is a living cultural arts district and a center of African American history and culture while supporting its diversity as it grows.
