"Smokedance" by Dale Garman is a six-piece sculpture series located in and around The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion. The bronze sculpture series was installed in 1989. Each piece weighs between 800 and 2,000 pounds ranging from 6 feet tall to 13 feet 6 inches tall. Dedication of the “Cynthia Woods Mitchell Smokedance Garden” was held prior to a Houston Symphony concert. The centerpiece of the pocket park is the bronze wisp of smoke aptly titled Smokedance, a sculpture that had been commissioned by Mrs. Mitchell herself years earlier. The dedication included a butterfly release in Cynthia Mitchell’s honor.
