Discovery Green Park awash in ‘Sunchronicity of Color’

Acclaimed Texas artist Margo Sawyer’s geometric work “Synchronicity of Color” was dedicated at Houston’s new downtown park, Discovery Green.

City Council Member James Rodriguez, Dawn Ullrich, director of the City of Houston Convention & Entertainment Facilities Department, Jonathon Glus, CEO of Houston Arts Alliance, Guy Hagstette, president of Discovery Green Conservancy, and Sawyer participated in dedication ceremonies. Sawyer received a mayoral proclamation from Council Member Rodriguez, who presented it on behalf of Mayor Bill White.

“Synchronicity of Color” is the newest addition to the City of Houston ‘s inventory of more than 400 civic art works in public spaces. The two-piece architectural installment of red- and blue-themed aluminum boxes conceal concrete stairwells that lead into the Convention District parking garage beneath Discovery Green, across from the George R. Brown Convention Center. More than 1,400 aluminum boxes were used to create the vibrant “Synchronicity of Color.”

Discovery Green is scheduled to be opened to the public on April 13.
