permanent installations: San Antonio Riverwalk, San Antonio, TX

29° 25′ 57″ N / 98° 29′ 13″ W and 29° 26′ 00″ N / 98° 29′ 07″ W are permanent installations along the famed Riverwalk in San Antonio, Texas. The work consists of suspended, stainless steel panels – each enclosing five layers of woven, architectural mesh. The three inner layers of mesh are treated with a powder-coated color. As visitors move by the installations on foot, bicycle or riverboat, the panels change color due to the viewer’s shifting perspective. The project’s 24-color palette was selected from photographs taken along the San Antonio River by the artist’s children Aidan and Vincent (4 1/2 and 1 1/2 when the snapshots were made).

Installed at the McCullough and Brooklyn Avenue underpasses, the project is part of a significant public initiative to expand the San Antonio Riverwalk. Funding for multiple public art commissions along the 1.5 mile development was provided by the San Antonio River Foundation.
