Event Details


VOLUNTEER! 

In response to the loss of millions of trees during the drought of 2011 and the aftermath of Hurricane Ike, Houston Arts Alliance, in partnership with Galveston Arts Center and Galveston Island Tree Conservancy, have invited Konstantin Dimopoulos to bring his temporary art installation The Blue Trees to Texas. This exhibition is social art action, and you can help display our eco-conscious spirit by joining in the installation of this captivating, temporary public art installation.  Go blue with us! For more information on this project, visit bluetreestexas.org.

HOUSTON

Volunteers are needed to help color the large stands of crepe myrtles between Allen Parkway and Memorial Drive at Waugh Drive; the trees at the historic Houston Parks and Recreation Department Gragg Building; and a solitary tree at the Houston Arts Alliance offices with biologically safe, water-based ultramarine mineral pigment. We hope you’ll join us in connecting with different institutions, community groups and individuals for this magical, eco-friendly public art project.
