Monuments by Craig Walsh

When: Now through January 18th, 2021

Where: Discovery Green

1500 McKinney Street

Houston, TX

Discovery Green honors unsung Houston heroes in its winter art installation, Monuments by Craig Walsh.

Monuments consists of slow-motion, close up videos of the faces of unsung Houston heroes projected onto five living trees in the park. The installation is by internationally recognized Australian artist Craig Walsh who has pioneered site-responsive projections in public spaces.

At once eerie and beautiful, the projections of human faces onto living trees creates a “monument” that connects the individual to nature.

At the same time, this installation challenges our conception of historic monuments and involves the public directly in the decision of who should be honored in public space.

New for this season are two, one-of-a-kind attractions on display at CityPlace at Springwoods Village. Bringing additional shimmer to CityPlace’s waterfront Plaza, a 35-foot Christmas tree will rise from the main pond, creating a dazzling beacon for the community. And as an equally dynamic complement to the floating centerpiece, local creative entrepreneur Steve Kopelman and his team of partner artisans at New Orleans-based Professional Scenic Services have been commissioned to fabricate the inaugural “gingerbread” village display on the lake system’s eastern banks, adjacent to the Houston CityPlace Marriott at Springwoods Village.

A super-sized, fantasy version of the holiday classic, the installation is anticipated to expand each year. From the Plaza, guests will wind around a path dotted with oversized candy canes, popsicles and gumdrops and cross under an entrance guarded by two gingerbread men before arriving at a raised clearing featuring cookie trees, a 16-foot high house and 12-foot windmill. This is a first of its kind endeavor for Kopelman, a pioneering and globally recognized haunted house producer, COO of the country’s largest escape room company, and co-founder of soon-to-open immersive experiential museum Seismique.

Both the tree and gingerbread village will be on display through January 9 with free hot chocolate served on the Plaza every Thursday and Sunday from 4 until 7 p.m.

Events in Houston this June - Covid 19 Edition

Events in Houston this June - Covid 19 Edition

Though Texas has begun to open, there are still few live events like we're used to in Houston. The large summertime events that draw thousands, like outdoor music festivals, BBQs, fireworks displays and all those other great outdoor activities we love to enjoy are still on hold. Even though Houston has been reopening, many businesses are being cautious and waiting longer. Sadly, some businesses will not be able to open up again.

There are some things you can do in Houston - you can get a hair cut, you can see a movie, you can visit your doctor and you can go out to eat. All of these things should be done with caution and most businesses will post clear messages about the safety measures they have taken and expect their customers and clientele to adhere to. Stay Safe Houston!
