Art League Houston is excited to present Sexual Selection, a site specific outdoor installation in the ALH Sculpture Garden by New York-born and Houston-based installation artist Jo Ann Fleischhauer. The project is inspired by the evolutionary process of the Birds-of-Paradise known as sexual selection, where females choose their mate based on the shape, color and display of the males’ plumage, and have ultimately determined the species' diverse and exotic variations. The installation explores ideas of visual aesthetics, in particular the function of beauty and features over one hundred brightly colored parasols that are hung throughout the trees. The opening reception is Friday June 20, 6 - 9 PM with an artist talk at 7:30 PM.
