Houston Audubon and Discovery Green present a screening of The Messenger, an 89 minute film from 2015. Come to the hill by the stage.  Also included are bird education activities and much more fun!

Also enjoy Paloma, sponsored by PNC Bank,  a temporary, site-specific public art installation in two parts. Paloma, created by French creative studio Pitaya, is a series of 200 colorful aluminum “origami” birds, which will be suspended from the canopy along Discovery Green’s Brown Promenade and will be illuminated by dynamic LED lights after dusk to create the illusion of flight. Complementing Paloma is Here and Now, a sound installation by Houston-based artist and anthropologist Lina Dib, whose work explores ecological change and global migration. Dib’s choreographed sounds will dance along the Brown Promenade in conversation with Pitaya’s sculptures to create an immersive and contemplative experience beneath the park’s century-old live oaks.
