Funnel Tunnel…


If you are an art enthusiast and have a curious mind like I do, you HAVE to check out Houston’s…Funnel Tunnel!

I asked my oldest daughter to take me to see this beauty when we arrived in Houston…I just squealed when we pulled up to it! Loved it.


Located on Montrose Boulevard, just outside the Art League of Houston.

This tie-dyed structure took more than a week to complete with a very large group of volunteers.


Patrick Rennner, the artist of this steel and wood structure (he reports the wood is from a turn of the century cotton gin.)




The tunnel stretches out to 180 feet…how fun is that?!

If you’re in the Houston area, it will be here for your viewing pleasure until May, 2014.

Have a great week.
