Midtown Street Art: The Case of the Abandoned Myrtle B Fonteno Building

This is the East facade on Fannin, which faces Houston's largest mural
spray-painted onto the side of the building across the street (see bottom of this page)

Art-adorned Abandoned Building Address:

Across the street, another noteworthy art project 
to complement Main Street Fonteno Muralism: 

Spray Can Creationism (not the official title)  

The block-length God-as-Spray-Painter mural is titled "Preservons la Creation"
(Let's Preserve the Creation)
This gigantic mural is located on East side of Fannin Street.
The building's address is 2800 San Jacinto Street Houston, TX 77004
rather than Fannin (because the entrances are on the East-facing side)
