HOUSTON – The largest mural produced in the history of the downtown Houston metro area, "Preservons La Creation" is in production in a privately donated space located at 2800 San Jacinto St., Houston's cultural arts and entertainment district.

Sebastien “Mr. D” Boileau, CEO and lead artist of Eyeful Art Murals and Designs said the meaning of this jaw-dropping work of art “Preservons La Creation” translates in English as "Let’s Preserve the Creation.”

“By placing this renaissance imagery within this contemporary context, we are using public art to not only beautify but to educate,” said Boileau.

The mission of the project is to raise public art awareness and create a conversation about the importance of street art to the culture of the city for generations to come. With this work of art, there is little doubt visitors will be electrified and taken aback by its beauty.

The mural canvas is an artist’s dream at 8,000 square feet – 60 feet high and one city block wide. A VIP preview reception on Thursday, June 5, 2014 at 7 p.m. will kick off a weekend-long celebration of the mural's unveiling. "Preservons La Creation" will officially be unveiled on Saturday, June 7, 2014.
