Our vision is to empower and inspire the creative community

An Artist’s Vision

This is a place we can come and share our true art and the things that come from our hearts and our minds and our guts. This is a place where we cannot just share it, but collaborate and add to each other’s art, songs, stories and poems. It is the most important thing for an artist to have a place to like that. That is why Visionary Heights matters to Houston.” 

RyanAdam Wells, Alternative Country Singer Songwriter & Vaudeville Comedian

About Our Vision

Visionary Heights’ vision is to empower amateur, aspiring and professional artists and musicians to succeed in their craft. Through events, programs and education, we work to inspire our creative community take their expression to the next level of success and enjoyment. 

Our non-profit Art Gallery and Listening Room holds monthly art shows, as well as concerts and community events. We also provide free space to non-profits, schools, and art organizations to hold juried art shows, poetry readings, and film showings.
