About Galveston ART BOUND 

How did ART BOUND begin?


Galveston ART BOUND began in September 2012. Following Hurricane Ike, SMART Family Literacy had a large quantity of damaged and obsolete books and put them to use by encouraging the creation of new art. 



Galveston ART BOUND 2016 is a green event. Consider the Earth as you create. Repurpose obsolete, old, or damaged books. Recycle art products appropriately. Reconsider, reduce, reject single use plastics at this event. 

The Surfriders' Foundation - Galveston Chapter created a wave from the pages of old books during the 2012 Galveston ART BOUND team competition.
