Trenton Doyle Hancock, a Houston-based artist, has transformed the interior walls of the Hermann Park Railroad train tunnel into a fantastical landscape populated with creatures both real and imagined. Destination Mound Town is a contribution to Hancock's ongoing narrative in his artwork of the Mounds, a group of mythical half-animal, half-plant characters. Train passengers are transported into a day in the life of the Mounds, beginning the journey as they arise in morning and exiting the tunnel as they settle in for the night.
Please note: there is no safe pedestrian access into the train tunnel. The work is only visible by train.
