Houston may have one of the most generous artist communities anywhere. And, tomorrow night, many of that community’s leaders are coming together to fight a terrible blight at The Art of Stopping Human Trafficking.


Art lovers are asked to join hosts Curry Glassell and Jason Fuller at the beautiful Wynden Houston in the Galleria area for a posh party and art auction featuring moving works by the likes of Rania Daniel, Molly Gochman, David Graeve, Terrell James, Sharon Kopriva, Layla Love, Angelbert Metoyer, Cruz Ortiz, McKay Otto and Weihhong. Proceeds will benefit Children at Risk. Additional information about tickets and auction items is available here.

The intersection of art and the struggle against human trafficking is also on full display at George Bush Intercontinental Airport. In association with Children at Risk’s fundraising and awareness-building efforts, Houston- and New York-based Red Sand Project has also created a massive installation on a mesa on the airport grounds. The installation features red-hued sand poured into crevices, forming an organic abstract image 700-feet wide.

Sales of homes priced at $750K and above — ones categorized in the "luxury" segment, per HAR — were up nearly 75 percent in January, compared to the same timeframe last year. Buyers appear to be taking advantage of the low interest rates, and not letting homes sit on the market for very long.

ASK HOUSTON CHEF, writer, filmmaker and activist Adán Medrano about the spiritual aspect of preparing a home-cooked meal, especially using the centuries-old recipes he enjoyed growing up in San Antonio and northern Mexico, and time seems to stop. "'There are voices in the wind. We've forgotten to listen to them,'" says Medrano quietly, sourcing a quote from the new documentary Truly Texas Mexican, which premieres March 1 on Amazon, Apple TV, Google TV and PBS stations across the country, and is inspired by his award-winning cookbook Truly Texas Mexican: A Native Culinary Heritage. "When you cook, you are dealing with a landscape," he explains. "Once you realize your connectiveness to the land and to each other, that is spirituality."
