Commute, by local artist, Sarah Welch, is rendered in the artist's signature comic book style. It depicts two women in profile, sitting back-to-back on a commuter train, each reading a different book. Through the train window is a glimpse of a classic Houston mixed-zoning neighborhood, with an auto shop and a home side-by-side. Commute is both a nod to everyday life in Houston and a metaphor for the power of books to transport readers through time and space.
Commute will be on view through November 2019.
