THE WOODLANDS ARTS COUNCIL’S ARTFEEL RETURNS 7PM SAT. DEC. 2ND WITH SHOW HONORING SHOAL PUBLIC ARTWORK LOCATED IN HUGHES LANDING SPONSORED BY HOWARD HUGHES. Featuring original new music by GIDEON BUSTAMANTE’S CREATIVE COLLECTIVE!
Don a warm jacket and bring your portable chairs or blankets, and head down to Hughes Landing for the 7pm Saturday, December 2nd, Artfeel celebration of Shoal, a public artwork, located in the walkway between Del Frisco’s and Fogo de Chao restaurants overlooking beautiful Lake Woodlands. This Artfeel is produced by The Woodlands Arts Council (TWAC) and sponsored by Howard Hughes.
Created by Squidsoup, an international company known for making award-winning digital media experiences, Shoal is the latest public art gift from Howard Hughes to our community. This massive artwork contains 750 individual orbs that are choreographed as a collective, inspired by movement patterns of shoals—large groups of fish swimming together in captivating patterns. Hundreds of speakers and LEDs work harmoniously together to create this symbolic art.
“Shoal is the newest interactive art piece in The Woodlands, complementing the expansive and diverse art collection in our community,” said Jim Carman, President, Houston Region for Howard Hughes. “We welcome residents and art enthusiasts to join The Woodlands Arts Council at Artfeel in Hughes Landing and experience Shoal.”
Inspired by the artwork, Gideon Bustamante, Artfeel’s artist-in-residence, is leading a creative collective, a Shoal of songwriters, in the production of an original song that will debut during the show. “Our songwriters took inspiration from several sensory elements of Shoal and have been writing and producing from these notes of inspiration,“ explains Bustamante.
Other performers include show co-host David Deveau, poet Dede Fox, singer/songwriter Kurt Vatland, painter/mime Olimpia Petzold Rodriguez, storyteller Teresa Kenney, singer/songwriter Pilar Victoria, modern dancer Nicola DeVries, cosplay artist Takanae Mae and storyteller Amanda Kentworthy Van Dusen.
