The colorful 30-foot plus We ♥ Houston sign could be thought of as Houston’s equivalent of Los Angeles’s Hollywood sign. David Adickes, a local artist and sculptor, created the sign out of concrete and steel. It is located on property Mr. Adickes owns along Chester Street near the Heights and faces I-10. Some of Mr. Adickes’s art works include the 67-foot tall Sam Houston statue near Huntsville, the 36-foot cellist named Virtuoso at the downtown Lyric Centre, 36-foot tall concrete statues of the Beatles, and Mount Rush Hour near the intersection of I-10 and I-45 in American Statesman Park. Mount Rush Hour includes the 18-foot tall busts of George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Sam Houston, and Stephen F. Austin (photo courtesy of RedStripePhotography)
