This free event includes “Color Remix,” a site-specific dance performance by Karen Stokes Dance Company, live music, a wearable art workshop and more. The fete will conclude with a spectacular aerial performance off the George R. Brown by VauLt Houston. Like all Discovery Green events, this free event is made possible by contributions from park users, foundations and sponsors.

The Color Condition considers the idea of “play” throughout Arcade, which consists of three separate installations that create a dialogue between sections of the Avenida Houston campus. The works — made from strips of table cloths, shower curtains and painters drop cloth — respond to the environment, creating new colors as the light changes and new patterns with each gust of wind. Arcade is the artists’ Houston debut and their largest commission since The Color Condition was established in 2010.
