The McGowen station was designed by local artist Floyd Newsum, as "an interpretation of the look and feel of the physical landscape of Midtown Houston." This includes mosaic-paneled columns, skyline-patterned railings and colored pavement along the platform. Motifs include images from historical Third Ward mansions. The mosaic panels were made by artist Jonathan Brown and NATEX Corporation was the station's architect.
