Following the unveiling of six new art benches Oct. 10, The Howard Hughes Corporation announced that it will host The Woodlands Art Crawl & Craft Beer Tasting Nov. 3.
During the art crawl, attendees will get a first look at the four new art benches, in addition to existing public art located around Hughes Landing, while enjoying craft beer samples and food tasting from a selection of restaurants along Restaurant Row, according to the release.
“The Woodlands Art Crawl & Craft Beer Tasting offers a unique opportunity to experience the beautiful art that adorns Hughes Landing,” said Jim Carman, vice president of MPC Commercial Development for The Howard Hughes Corporation, in a statement. “With nearly 60 pieces of outdoor art and 20 art benches in the community, The Woodlands is an art lover’s paradise.”
The event will also feature artist booths, 3D sidewalk artists and sketch artists, according to the release. While entertainment and arts are free, the purchase of $15 wristbands will allow attendees to participate in the food tasting and up to five beer samples. A portion of proceeds from ticket sales will benefit The Woodlands Arts Council.
As part of Phase 3 of the Art Bench Collection, the four newest art benches unveiled in Hughes Landing include “Resolute” by Paul Reimer located near Lakes Edge Boat House; “The Woodlands Wind-O” by STEROTANK located near Truluck’s; “Quercus” by Owen Dixon located in the median of Restaurant Row; and “Unmasked Symbiosis” by Gaston Carrio.
“These dramatic and contemporary pieces by celebrated international artists add to the dynamic ambience of Hughes Landing, which provides stunning, panoramic views of Lake Woodlands,” Carman said in a statement.
The Woodlands Arts Crawl & Craft Beer Tasting will take place Nov. 3 from 2-5 p.m. at Hughes Landing. To purchase a wristband for the event, click here.
