Field Elementary School in the Houston Heights now has a new and improved soccer field. It is open for use by the community after school hours and on the weekends. Thank you to the Friends of Field and the Field Elementary PTO for all of their hard work bringing this vision to life.
Falon Mihalic was commissioned for a permanent public art installation for Understory at Capitol Tower in downtown Houston. The work, Rain, is an installation of a large scale painted water body with glistening rain drops. It’s created from layers of paint and pure pigment on a 20’ x 12’ wall. Acrylic sculptures welded from mirrored acrylic sheet create three dimensional prismatic water beads. Additionally, Falon was invited to be an inaugural artist for the Milam Art Wall with a 10’x8’ dyed paper work for the public entry of Understory.
The Arts Foundation for Tucson and Southern Arizona has accepted Falon Mihalic as a pre-qualified public artist. We look forward to pursuing environmental art projects in the desert southwest in the near future.

Today we’d like to introduce you to Falon Mihalic.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Falon. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there…….
"Stories from the Florida Panhandle" is an essay with a series of collages by Falon Mihalic published in the most recent issue of Tempor Magazine. Digital and print copies of the magazine along with limited edition prints of the collages are available here.
Falon Mihalic and Ross Wienert won a Let Creativity Happen! Grant as part of the city’s initiative to support “innovative ideas that redefine artistic boundaries”. The project is an interactive sculpture that responds to the weather environmental conditions and will be installed along the Columbia Tap Rail Trail in Houston’s Third Ward. Using programmed LED lights, the work will respond to Houston’s weather variations in temperature, light, and rainfall as it changes over the course of several months. This project is funded in part by the City of Houston through the Houston Arts Alliance.
