Waller Creek Conservancy is pleased to announce that Creek Show 2017 will return to Waller Creek on November 10-18. Creek Show, now in its fourth year, spans nine nights and includes six light-based, site-specific art installations, which will be installed on Waller Creek between 5th and 8th Streets. The community is invited to walk along Waller Creek to view the works of art designed to bring attention to the future revitalization and transformation of Waller Creek into a series of urban parks.
The event has grown in popularity each year and the Conservancy received a record number of requests from designers about how to participate. In response, the Conservancy opened a Call for Ideas for the first time this year. Supporting and showcasing local talent has always been one of the primary objectives of Creek Show and to this end, being based in Austin remains a requirement for selection. The selection committee was thrilled to receive 47 submissions that demonstrated the diverse array of artistic disciplines found in our community.
After thoughtful deliberation, the committee selected six installations that are sure to surprise and delight attendees. The Conservancy would like to thank every submitting team for their interest in Waller Creek and their support of Creek Show. The Conservancy would also like to thank the selection committee for devoting time and attention to the process.
