ShadeCloud is an outdoor installation located in the Art League Houston sculpture garden. It weaves together lampshades into four cloud-like structures that suspend from the surrounding trees. These structures provide shade and cool misting during the day and lamplight during the evening.

The installation not only references the dynamic weather patterns characteristic of the Houston area, but also provides a unique source of shade for the local community, especially with the extreme heat waves we are currently experiencing within our city.

The opening reception is Thursday, August 25 from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. ShadeCloud will remain on view at Art League Houston through December 31, 2011.
