In celebration of Hermann Parkʼs centennial year, the Hermann Park Conservancy has started a public art campaign to bring contemporary art installations to the park in 2014. “Art in the Park” has already installed Wind Waves by Yvonne Domenge by the Sam Houston Monument and Patrick Dougherty’s Boogie Woogie at the entrance of the Japanese Garden.
The next few days will mark the completion of Destination Mound Town by Trenton Doyle Hancock, located in the train tunnel and, on March 13, there will be a public reception for Orly Genger’s Boys Cry Too, located near the Bill Coats Bike Bridge. Upcoming installations will include Louise Bourgeois’ Spider, as well as works by Sharon Engelstein, Ugo Rondinone, the University of Houston’s Graduate Design/BUILD Studio and the Rice University School of Architecture.
