Lacking a convenient building to demolish, the Art League Houston is sending out a call for scrap lumber for Funnel Tunnel, Patrick Renner’s 185-foot public artwork now beginning construction along the Montrose Boulevard median. They’re looking for the good, the bad and the ugly- 2×4’s 2×6’s , even 2×10’s- along with painted and unpainted lengths of board of all types, but NO PLYWOOD! They ask that all donation be free of nails, and fasteners, too. Call (713) 523-9530 to schedule a drop off!
It’s the inaugural effort of the Art League’s new Esplanade Project, which aims at placing more pieces on more Montrose medians in the future.
