David Scanavino Rendering of "Repeater" at the Moody Center for the Arts

Finally. A visual art piece that not only allows viewers to touch it, it encourages visitors to follow pathways and move in and around the artwork. The "it" is a new site-specific sculpture by Brooklyn-based David Scanavino. For Repeater, the artist arranged common industrial tiles up the walls (as high as 24 feet) and along the ground to create geometric pathways. DJ Flash Gordon is on deck for this opening day celebration (noon to 2:30 p.m.), followed by a presentation with the artist (2:30 to 3 p.m.). Nosh on food truck fare and listen to H-Town's Outspoken Bean as he delivers a spoken word performance along with poets from Meta-Four Houston and the Houston V.I.P. Poetry Slam (3 to 4:30 p.m.).

Noon to 6 p.m. June 3. Moody Center for the Arts, 6100 Main. For information, call 713-348-2787 or visit moody.rice.edu. Free.

[Organizer's description:]

Join the Moody Center for the Arts for a full day of free family programming to inaugurate the new site-specific sculpture "Repeater" by Brooklyn-based David Scanavino. Playfully skewing the shape of the floor and sending it up the walls to a height of 24 feet, the design of "Repeater", made of commonly available industrial tiles, creates pathways that invite people to move in and around the artwork.

To inaugurate the colorful work, the Moody will hold a day of family programs on Saturday, June 3, 12-6PM, including a set by DJ Flash Gordon Parks (12-2:30PM), food trucks, and a presentation by David Scanavino (2:30-3PM). Additionally, Houston’s own Outspoken Bean will hold a spoken word performance from 3-4:30PM that includes poets from Meta-Four Houston and Houston V.I.P. Poetry Slam to help welcome the new installation. The Moody is also partnering with the non-profit Aurora Picture Show to host a film screening in the Lois Chiles Studio Theater from 4:30-6PM.
