'Umbrellas Over the Esplanade' to Debut on Navigation Esplanade

A very special edition of the monthly “Evenings on the Esplanade” event will take place this Friday, August 12 from 6pm-10pm. The event will feature the incredible local talents of Nick Gaitan & The Umbrella Man as entertainment emcees and a one-night-only opportunity to participate in an on-site installation and public art project on the Navigation Esplanade.

World Barbecue Champions Pitmaker Team will be on hand to offer great BBQ selections that will make the entire neighborhood’s mouth water.

As always, this event is family-friendly and FREE to the public, so come on out and join us for an amazing evening of entertainment and excitement in East End Houston!

ABOUT THE INSTALLATION:

Curated by local artist and exhibit-builder Amanda De Rosario, the “Umbrellas Over the Esplanade” installation will be on display through September 12th. Participants will be able to retrieve and keep their signature painted pieces after its month-long run.

The cost of each umbrella, including painting supplies and artistic assistance/direction by Ms. De Rosario (as requested), will be $20 with all net proceeds directly benefitting the projects and initiatives of the East End Foundation / East End Cultural District.
