HOUSTON – Houston artist Marc Furi has unveiled a new original art piece.

Titled “I Love 3W,” the Monopoly-inspired installation illustrates the result of gentrification in Third Ward.

The piece highlights well-known gentrified places and streets like McGowen Street, Moore & Moore Townhome Builders and South McGregor. It also complements a room at Project Row House.

The illustration can be viewed at the Station Museum of Contemporary Art.

“I Love 3W” also features an online shop.
