Moving and storage company to support local arts agency and artists on their creative journey with additional support from Gensler
Online PR News – 12-February-2015 – HOUSTON, Tex. – To show support of local arts and help inspire creativity within the community, PODS of Houston, a moving and storage company, has teamed up with Houston Arts Alliance for 2nd art installation project with additional support provided by Gensler.
This is Houston Arts Alliance Civic Art + Design program’s second iteration of a temporary public art installation series featuring the transformation of PODS Containers into works of art. The 2014 - 2015 artists selected are Elaine Bradford and Emily Link, Brandon Ray and Team Paper Brain (Darwin Arevalo, Rodney Flores, Rob Mozell, Lisa Ray and Janiece Rivas), Thomas Rolls, Jr. and Troy Stanley.
Each artist or artist team received their PODS Container this fall and spent three months in the construction process, based on designs submitted as part of the grant process. All four transformed PODS Containers will be showcased at White Oak Conference Center, 7603 Antoine, beginning in late January. The individual PODS Containers will then be placed in different locations across Greater Houston, taking contemporary art into our region’s many diverse neighborhoods. All four will “reconvene” in Oyster Creek Park in Sugar Land, where they will be on display from late April until the end of May.
“An important component of the Houston Arts Alliance mission is to expand the reach of local arts beyond gallery and museum walls,” explains HAA President and CEO, Jonathon Glus. “The Art project takes this mission a step further by delivering contemporary art to Houstonians outside the city limits, providing easy access to quality family-friendly and interactive artworks.”
“PODS of Houston is very passionate on supporting the arts and we loved developing this innovative idea to help promote the local artist within the Houston community,” said Larry Sledge, President of PODS of Houston.
