Culturemap Houston: 9 Vivid and Eye-catching August Art Events No Houstonian Should Miss


Culturemap Houston Arts and Culture writer Tarra Gaines features Weingarten Art Group’s latest public art installation at Discovery Green, House of Cards, among a selection of fantastic art events happening this fall.

House of Cards will open to the public on August 28th and will remain on view through October 11th, featuring the artwork of 20 local Houston creatives.

Tarra Shares:

Created by Israeli design studio OGE Group, and consisting of 126 five feet tall light box playing cards stacked to a height of 18 feet this is one card house that won’t fall any time soon. Each unique card tells its own visual story and twenty Houston artists were selected to have their designs included to represent the city as the installation continues to tour the world. The installation can be viewed in the day or night, but since Discovery Green anticipates crowds for the stunner of a light show when the sun goes down, they’ll require reservations on Friday and the weekends. The preview fundraiser “House of Cards CAR-nival” revves up August 27.
