There will be 12 participating artist. Each artist investigates the relationship between human behavior, human health, and the environment. Their mixed-media sculptures will be site specific and will ponder how humans assimilate and possibly dominate plant habitats.
June Woest, founder of Urban Artists studio, and assistant Claudia Franco are coordinating the park exhibition in conjunction with Nature Discovery Center in Bellaire. One of the missions of Urban Artists is to create sculpture that is community aware and environmentally conscious. They work cooperatively with communities via exhibition, research, and collaboration.
