Color the Ave - POSTPONED

Color the Ave - POSTPONED

Discovery Green

[Updated September 6, 2017:] Due to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts, Houston First has decided to cancel the Color the Ave event. We will be in touch with information regarding the rescheduled dates.

After days and weeks of drab brown water, and way too much of it, we could all use a break. The colorful streamer sculptures created by Sunny Sliger and Marianne Newsom over at Avenida Houston and Discovery Green seem like the perfect setting for an afternoon/evening of performance art. Color The Ave kicks off with Color Remix, performed by the artists of Karen Stokes Dance with musical accompaniment by Terrence Karn. The program includes interactive dance performances, more music, a wearable art workshop and the grand finale: a spectacular, gravity-defying aerial performance by VauLT on the vertical walls of George R. Brown Convention Center. All the world's a stage, and now our convention center is, too.

4 to 8 p.m. September 9. 1500 McKinney. For information, call 713-400-7336 or visit Free.
