Los Trompos

Video: A kaleidoscope of colors engenders play in everyone as Los Trompos debuts at Discovery Green


Discovery Green was awash with vibrant, beautiful hues as the public received Los Trompos (Spinning Tops) with the intended outcome: A community that — similar to the 20 spinning structures that nodded to the popular street toy and traditional Mexican weaving traditions — represented the true colors of Houston’s diversity, coming together for community, laughter and play.

Because, as Discovery Green’s public art committee chair says about the installation, Los Trompos is just as much a jungle gym for adults as it is a playground for children.

Watch the video above (or click here), produced for the Weingarten Art Group, which includes interviews with Lea Weingarten, Judy Nyquist and Mexico City designers designers Héctor Esrawe and Ignacio Cadena.
