Lunch and fresh fruit snow cones from Yetti Sunshine food truck (YUM!) will be provided to all painting volunteers as a THANK YOU!
No experience necessary
Willingness to volunteer
*********Paint and brushes will be provided********
Why FUNNEL TUNNEL matters?
The 'Funnel Tunnel' public art project will increase the cultural, social, and economic value of the Montrose area. It will reflect the creative people and businesses in the area, and will add meaning and uniqueness to Montrose Blvd. With Houston being such a concrete jungle, this creative project will help humanize the built environment that we live in and invigorate the public spaces around us. The Mayor’s office has been very supportive and 90% of the funding comes from the City of Houston through the Houston Arts Alliance.
Most importantly this public art installation will be free and accessible for the public to view.
Special thanks to Texas Art Supply!!
