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.
