Trumpet Flower Painting Party With Houston Artist Patrick Renner says
You’re invited to join Houston artist, Patrick Renner, and art collective Flying Carpet, for a painting party at Market Square Park on Saturday, January 30.

Trumpet Flower, a sculpture designed by Renner and produced by art collective Flying Carpet, has been selected for the Downtown District’s inaugural “Art Blocks” public art project at Main Street Square. However, before the piece can be installed in March, we need your help. The community is invited to attend a painting party on Saturday, January 30 from noon – 4 pm at Market Square Park. Guests are invited to come and go during that time frame and help paint the strips of wood that will soon make up the Trumpet Flower.

Strips of wood and painting supplies will be provided for participants. There is no cost, minimum age or minimum time commitment required to participate.

Food and drinks will be available for purchase from Niko Niko's as well as the Oh My Gogi! BBQ and THE WAFFLE BUS food trucks.

DJ Sun will also be spinning cool tunes for the crowd's listening pleasure.

This is a rain or shine event.

About the piece:
Both a public art piece and a canopy structure, Trumpet Flower will be installed in a recessed area between One City Centre and their garage on the 1000 block of Main Street. Slats of brightly colored recycled wood will be woven together to form the skin of the structure, which rises up 60 feet to the roof of the adjacent parking garage. Tables and chairs will be placed under the canopy for public use. The work will be on view from April 2016 to March 2017.

About the artist:
Patrick Renner is a Houston artist best known for Funnel Tunnel (2013), a sculpture that was on view from August 2014 to February 2015 along Montrose Boulevard (between West Gray and Westheimer) as part of Art League Houston’s Esplanade Project. Renner’s work has been shown nationally in galleries and in public spaces.
