Pamela Council Presents "Red Drink" June 19th at the Miller Outdoor Theater

This Juneteenth, join 2018 TIF Round 10 grantee Pamela Council and The Houston Museum of African American Culture (HMAAC) for Red Drink: A BLAXIDERMY Juneteenth Offering, a temporary fountain sculptural installation at Houston’s Miller Outdoor Theatre (4:00-7: 00pm, Tuesday, June 19th, 6000 Hermann Park Drive). In this outdoor sculpture, Council presents a palm-tree-shaped fountain filled with over 800 gallons of Big Red soda. Guests are welcome to participate in a new ritual performance with the fountain: dip styrofoam cups in the soda, toast to freedom, and pour out a bit of this celebratory drink for the ancestors.
