Location: Museum of Illusions Houston ~ 5060 W. Alabama
I had the best time attending the VIP preview party at the new Museum of Illusions Houston! 🖤🌀🪞 This entire exhibit is packed with so many fun vignettes that you can immerse yourself in… upside down, twirling, sideways and many more!
Encompassing 6,000 square feet that features over 60 exhibits, MOI Houston’s multi-faceted installations include, “Grand Illusions” – which serve as the concept’s primary attractions – include, among others, the Reversed Room, which will transfix visitors with a 180-degree change of perspective; the Tilted Room, where the surface is not quite as level as it initially appears; and the Vortex Tunnel, a pathway that provides a fun and exciting way for visitors to experience a different perception of reality. Additional perception-altering components spread throughout the exhibit area, include the Cloning Table’s confounding take on the concept of replication; and the Beuchet Chair and its spell-binding magical elements.
Engaging the local art community, the Museum of Illusions has collaborated with Houston-based artist Donkeeboy (Alex Roman Jr.) to cultivate two works of art that are bursting with color, imagination, and his trademark style that remixes pop culture. The two pieces will include his awe-inspiring ‘Wonder Frida,’ a tribute to Frida Kahlo that will be on display inside the Following Eyes exhibit and an entirely never before seen, as yet unnamed piece crafted exclusively for the Museum that will be located in the Building Illusion within the concept.
