Art Workshops for Buffalo Bayou Park’s Grand Opening

August 14, 2015 @ 11:00 am - 8:00 pm

Event Navigation

This past June, Houstonians worked with visiting artists Alex Kahn and Sophia Michahelles of Processional Arts Workshop (PAW) to create 26 large-scale lanterns for Buffalo Bayou Park’s grand opening evening procession rescheduled for Saturday, October 3. All the visual elements pay homage to Houston and Buffalo Bayou: an art car, a margarita glass, egret, running shoe, and more!

BBP is excited to continue these arts workshops beginning Saturday, August 1 through Friday, August 14 with local artists taking the lead!

Workshops are free, all materials are provided, and no experience is required. Kids (ages 9 and up) working with an adult are welcome! Different techniques and tasks will take place each day (i.e., building the structure out of bamboo and rattan, papier-mâché, and adding color) as the collective work progresses. View photos from June’s art workshops here.

Sign up to volunteer at one (or more) art workshops!

About Confluence: A Journey in Five Movements

22 Bayous fan across Houston, converging lines that link neighborhoods, histories, ecosystems, and cultures – several gravitating toward the common arterial space of Buffalo Bayou. On October 3, we will gather to celebrate the restoration and re-imagining of Buffalo Bayou Park as multiple illuminated processions come together one-by-one along its storied banks. The final performance takes place in Buffalo Bayou Park between Carruth Bridge at the Houston Police Officers’ Memorial and Sabine Street Bridge. Confluence reflects upon a waterway and a city in perpetual motion – of bats, boats, bicyclists. As distinct “streams” of marchers come together from throughout the park, the growing procession will embody a place where the converging diversity of Houston flows into the shared space of Buffalo Bayou Park.
