Mueller to celebrate new public art

Tuesday, September 15, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano

This Friday, Sept. 18, the city will dedicate the Mueller neighborhood’s new public sculpture, Geode, by Hunter Cross. According to a press release, “The sculpture is designed to appear as an enormous geode with modules cast of green glass and featuring programmable LED lights which subtly pulse at dusk. Geode is meant to evoke a sense of wonderment and encourages the viewer to examine his or her relationship with nature and geologic time.” The public dedication will also feature activities for children such as fossil rubbings and education about geodes courtesy of the Austin Gem and Mineral Society. The ceremony will take place from 6:30 until 8:30 p.m., near the intersection of James Wheat and Robert Browning streets.
