Buffalo Bayou Park: Cistern Illuminated

  • This event has passed.

This winter, beginning November 25, Buffalo Bayou Partnership is offering a new way to encounter the Buffalo Bayou Park Cistern. Designed by local artist and engineer Kelly O’Brien of Fenris, Cistern Illuminated features undulating lights that provide a unique perspective on this cavernous underground space. The custom temporary lighting will amplify the reservoir’s 221 columns, adding a new dimension to the reflection in the glassy water below.
