Artist Talk with Daily tous le jour

Artist Talk with Daily tous le jour
on “Hello Trees! A Walking Serenade”
on the Hess Deck
November 17, 2017
6pm-8pm

We invite you to a special pre-opening Artist Talk with the Montreal art collective Daily tous les jours–the creative minds behind Discovery Green’s first public art installation commissioned specifically for the park: Hello Trees! A Walking Serenade.

Taking inspiration from the century-old live oaks that form the heart of the park, Daily tous les jours conceived Hello, Trees! as a metaphor for the way trees use nonverbal cues to communicate complex information. Comprised of a series of arches under the live oak canopy, visitors are invited to speak into input stations located at each end of the sculpture, and their voice messages are translated into light patterns that travel along the arches.

Please join us for this exciting opportunity to hear directly from the artists and get a first glimpse of the captivating Hello Trees! installation in progress.

Discovery Green’s programming is made possible in part by generous funders including The Brown Foundation, Kinder Foundation, Sterling Turner Charitable Foundation, Winston Charitable Foundation and by a grant from the City of Houston through the Houston Arts Alliance. Hotel accommodations provided by the Marriott Marquis Houston/RIDA Development Corporation. Professional services provided by the Weingarten Art Group.
