NEW ARTWORKS INSTALLED AT HOUSTON POLICE DEPARTMENT'S SOUTH GESSNER DIVISION

Last month, artist Tara Conley completed an extensive permanent installation of 35 sculptures at the City of Houston Police Department South Gessner Division.

“In learning about the patience, tolerance and vigilance police officers must exercise to do their job well, I was inspired to create sculptures that would transform their workspace in unexpected ways and encourage them in their day to day tasks,” explains artist Tara Conley.

Be on the lookout for announcements regarding the opening celebration for this impressive installation.
