Where
Montrose Boulevard, outside Art League Houston

“Funnel Tunnel” and sponsored by Art League Houston, was welcomed to the neighborhood with music, snowballs and craft beer—not to mention a few daring onlookers sprinting across the busy street to get a better view. “People were braving their life to see it that close,” says Alex Barber, web designer by day, photographer by night. The tie-dyed-looking structure took more than a week to install with the help of a large group of volunteers. The civic art piece from Houston-based artist Patrick Renner, made of steel and wood reportedly reclaimed from a turn of the century cotton gin, stretches out 180 feet and will dazzle passersby until May of 2014.
