Mayor Annise Parker will dedicate Jaume Plensa's Tolerance, a gift to the City of Houston by private donors, who, working in conjunction with the Houston Arts Alliance and the Greater Houston Community Foundation, celebrating Houston's openness, diversity and international character.

Plensa's Tolerance consists of seven stainless steel human figures (representing the seven continents) approximately ten feet high rendered in his signature stainless steel alphabet mesh. Each figure is formed specifically to rest atop a unique boulder hand-selected by the artist in his native Spain. At night, the figures will glow from within.

The work is along Buffalo Bayou at Montrose Blvd. and Allen Parkway. Parking is available on the grass on the south side of Allen Parkway at Montrose.
