The Children’s Museum of Houston and local moving company Ameritex Movers announced today the museum’s newest installation — a lifesize model of the Houston skyline made out of cardboard. Visitors can enjoy the display now through Sept. 4. It is located just outside the Invention Convention Gallery, which focuses on maker and engineering concepts.
The cardboard model was created by team members of Ameritex Movers, and reaches 8 feet tall and 10 feet wide. The piece took over 125 hours and 700 sticks of hot glue, and was made out of packing supplies the moving company uses on a regular basis.
