On Friday, April 22, 2016, the public is invited to discover the newest addition to the City of Austin’s public art collection with a slightly mad Tea Party, hosted by Austin Art in Public Places! , Golden Afternoon, a responsive art installation, was recently installed in the Seaholm neighborhood.
Inspired by Texas wildflowers and Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Golden Afternoon is a responsive public art installation in the parking structure of the Seaholm Redevelopment Project. The installation mimics a hanging garden that has overgrown from the flower beds on the ground level, down the open stairwell, and making its way into the parking lot. Reminiscent of a trip down the rabbit hole from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, the artwork experience is heightened by lighting which responds to people moving up and down the stairs.
Enjoy tea and cookies with the artists, Rick Lin and Shagun Singh (Urban Matter Inc.), and learn more about this exciting new public artwork for the Seaholm EcoDistrict. Pick up your own packet of Texas wildflower seeds and Alice in Wonderland activity books, courtesy of the Harry Ransom Center.
