Sawyer Yards is a creative community thriving in the heart of Houston’s historic First Ward and Arts District Houston, surrounded by an active rail yard where 20+ trains change the landscape each day. Against this backdrop, industrial warehouses transformed into built- for-purpose studios are now home to one of the largest working artist communities in the country. This exceptional art community is complemented by creative businesses, public galleries, unique dining and entertainment venues—all brought to life through an active schedule of special events.
