To celebrate Hermann Park’s 100th Anniversary, the Hermann Park Conservancy is proud to introduce the Centennial Art Project, entitled Art in the Park. The series of contemporary art installations will be displayed over the park’s 445 acres throughout the entire calendar year. Art in the Park presents a diverse array of public art experiences and is sure to delight the over six million visitors the park hosts each year.
Notable installations in the exhibit include a permanent commission for a train tunnel by Houston artists Trenton Doyle Hancock, a woven sculpture of colorful nautical rope by Orly Genger, a monumental sculpture by Mexican artist Yvonne Domenge, and a signature bent-twig sculpture by Patrick Dougherty.
Visitors will be able to enjoy the exhibits at any time over the course of 2014 and there are no opening times or admission costs. Feel free to visit the park at your leisure and celebrate Hermann Park’s Centennial.
