Thanks, it’s a bit more difficult without a map of your bike route. 😉

I sometimes think you have a GPS tracker on my bicycle because you find my spots so easy 🤣😜

Maybe, maybe not. 😎 Seriously, though, I like solving puzzles and I am pretty observant  - I guess it’s my engineering background. And I have done quite a bit of exploring around Houston myself, although not on a bicycle.

OK, I just posted my route. See if you can find it but I have a few more for you just in case.😎🤔

I knew I had seen this before, but I couldn’t place it at first - 7400 Fannin.

Great find, it's right next to the new Women's Hospital going up on OST. Here is the last one I took today. Let's see if your GPS is still intact.😜

I’d rather guess where the Houston/East End murals are. 😁 I’ll find this, though!

That is the correct building, mural is actually on 137 Nolan St. but Google Maps still shows a gray wall. Nevertheless you are the winner.

Yes, that made this quiz particularly difficult! I overlooked this building at first because Google Maps doesn’t reflect the current view. There was actually a clue in this photo that helped to solve it:

Well, I have to admit I am stumped. I would guess that it is on the UH campus given the background and your bike route, but can’t find any evidence of this piece being a part of their collection.

Ah, ok, just east of the College of Architecture building (I can’t figure out how to embed the map).

I could not find this listed as part of UH’s public art collection. Is it a student or faculty project?

I looked for a plaque but there isn't one, I too looked on the UH Public Art website and it's not on it. But here it is on Google Maps.

I've been trying but I'm not familiar enough with some of this to have gotten any before you did.  Funny thing though, this last one I recognized right away, but after you had already answered.

I thought it looked like the egg/vase/basket thing from the NY hudson yards project, except fallen over
