Discovery Green has become known for its exceptional public art installations, especially in the wintertime. This year, the 12-acre downtown park is presenting two new installations: Firmament, a vibrant canopy of LED lights by acclaimed Burning Man artist Christopher Schardt, and Enchanted Promenade, towering, colorful peonies by TILT, a French light art and design studio. Both installations were possible through a grant from the Kinder Foundation.

Firmament and Enchanted Promenade are selections of Discovery Green’s Public Art Committee, and set to capture the imaginations of Houstonians, tourists and park-goers.

Firmament is on display through Jan 8, 2017 and Enchanted Promenade is on display through Feb. 19, 2017. Both are free and open to the public.
