Funnel Tunnel


Larger version here.

Y’all know I love my Houston neighborhood of Montrose because of its diversity and its nurturing of the arts. My new favorite thing, recently installed in the median of Montrose Boulevard in front of Art League Houston is “Funnel Tunnel,” public art by local artist Patrick Renner. I was able to get a few shots of it today. I’d like to hang out on the median and get more photos from its underbelly or some better close-ups, but I think that’s best left for when the heat wave breaks and maybe when the mosquitos don’t love me so much.

    I love public art! Especially when it’s whimsical like the Funnel Tunnel.

    I would be worried that lightning might strike it. Or, a giant cat would get inside it and sing a ballad about a lost hat. ;)

      In one of the articles I read, mention was made that the open part was high enough off the ground to keep homeless people from trying to crawl inside it. I’m sure determined possums and squirrels can still manage it. I’m not sure what ballads they sing, though. =)
