Odyssey in Houston

Cai’s latest gunpowder drawing Odyssey was unveiled to the public last weekend at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Spanning approximately fifty meters and mounted as a permanent installation, it is his largest gunpowder drawing to date in the United States.

Culturemap.com in Houston followed Cai in his journey–from the call for volunteers, to the ignition, to the final installation.

Also, the city of Houston would like to know if you have ever seen anyone so excited to receive a cowboy hat.
