Long Description:
The Montrose Whole Foods is located at 701 Waugh Drive in Houston's fun artsy and funky Montrose neighborhood. More specifically, the store is at the intersection of Waugh Dr. and W. Dallas; just south of Allen Parkway near Downtown Houston.

This is actually the SECOND Art O Mat in Hourston:

From the press release: (visit link)

"Second Art-o-mat® in Houston…..

Categories: News
Hi All!

We now have a second Art-o-mat® in Houston, TX. Our host will be the new Whole Foods Market in the Montrose neighborhood. The machine was designed with items from the bulk bins from our local WFM.

Diverseworks is our long time Houston host.

We also have another new host in Texas. The Esquire Tavern in San Antonio….which is the oldest bar on the Riverwalk.

Anyway, all eight of our Texas venues are interested in having local artists in their machines. We often hear that this artist/that artist wants to make Art-o-mat® work. But, there is a good chance that “We’ve howdyed but we ain’t shook”….aka: we haven’t been formally introduced. So, if you know of any artists who are interested in being involved, please send them our way."

Blasterz had GREAT FUN getting some art here. All the Blaster girls got lovely hand-painted landscape paintings on dominoes we could wear around our necks, and Daddy Blaster got a sculpture of a hand.
