The Faris Foundation ART PASS 

In collaboration with artists, arts institutions, and other partners, The Faris Foundation co-designs and deploys creative strategies that build community and awareness around the GOLD ribbon, while also bringing more ART into the world!



Lead Artist: Roni Cabrera/HTX Art Bus

September 2021

Multiple sites in Houston, TX

We collaborated with artist Veronica (Roni) Cabrera-Moreno of HTX Art Bus, who decked out her bus in GOLD and took it all over the city of Houston to invite the public to be a part of a collective art-making adventure. Roni made a total of 10 stops with the GOLD HTX Art Bus at museums, parks, schools, restaurants, and Ronald McDonald House for a grand finale. Over 600 families participated and contributed their golden art to the project (which will be woven together in a larger piece). 

Partners + Host Venues: Discovery Green Park; Asia Society Texas Center; Benbrook Elementary; Paige Elementary; Ronald McDonald House; Prime; Wendy’s, and others. 

This program has been made possible thanks to our generous sponsors: Asurion, The Dinerstein Companies, and Truist.
