Public Art Install

Video: It doesn’t take long before people of all ages are tempted by colorful, innocent play


Not even one hour had passed before a few passersby were intrigued by the vibrant colors that awash the Sarofim Picnic Lawn at Discovery Green®. As soon as Weingarten Art Group’s hired installers began unwrapping the first component of Mexico City designers Héctor Esrawe and Ignacio Cadena’s Los Trompos, curious walkers were tempted by exactly what the structures are meant to do — engender a smile in everyone.

Alongside Discovery Green Conservancy staff, Weingarten Art Group’s consultants watched as everyone — including a dog or two — took the installation for a spin.

A special opening celebration is scheduled for Saturday, November 14, beginning at 2 pm. The event will include live mariachi music, ballet folklorico, arts and crafts, activities and more. Performances and activities will begin at 2 pm, followed by a talk at 5 pm with the designers.

Watch the video below which details the first day of the installation.
