Overview
Map

The Shape of Things: Michael Craig-Martin at Discovery Green comprises a series of six monumental sculptures by the renowned British artist Michael Craig-Martin, whose colorful, oversized steel forms offer a playful perspective of everyday objects and challenge our perception of space, appearing like line drawings in the air. This is the first exhibition of the Craig-Martin’s sculptures to be seen in Texas, and only the second venue in the United States. Six sculptures ranging from 8 to 12 feet high depict everyday objects such as an umbrella, a wheelbarrow, a light bulb, a shoe. These larger-than-life works are playful and evocatively simple. The works are showcased around the park’s Kinder Lake and are on view during park hours.
