Heritage Lanterns, (2005) five steel â€œturretsâ€ internally lit with ever-changing LEDs mark the entrance to an active urban park. The artwork references both the elegant Victorian mansions formerly populating this part of downtown while at the same time evoking parlor games; a fitting referent for a park located across from Toyota Center, home of the Houston Comets and Rockets.
A project of the City of Houston Civic Art Program, it was funded by the Houston Convention and Entertainment Facilities Department (C+E) and managed by the Cultural Arts Council of Houston + Harris County.
This project was selected for the Public Art Network 2005 Year In Review Collection and Art In America's 2005 In Review: Public Art.
