Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge: Wall

Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge: Wall

Smither Park – Houston, TX. My husband and I visited this park (actually, we found it by chance!) in June of 2013.

This park has a variety of conceptual installations being planned. The Memory Wall  has several sections, with different artists working on each one. (There is a sign up on the back of the sign.) These photos show parts of the wall, including close-ups. Artists use a variety of materials to design their section of the wall.

This sign shows the vision for the entire park  when installations are finished. They apparently got some funding to at least complete the Memory Wall.

Each number represents an area that needs to be worked on. Some of these are already in progress. Various local artists have signed up for different sections.

Each artist that works on the wall has his/her own unique ideas of what kind of design & materials to use. Especially fascinating is this octopus with cups for eyes.
