Downtown Houston Art Hotspot
Seven Wonders – Art Installation
Rising dramatically above Buffalo Bayou’s Sesquicentennial Park is the seven 70-ft-tall pillars “Seven Wonders” art installation. Flanking the park’s Promenade and Preston Avenue Bridge. The columns highlight Houston’s history through the themes of agriculture, energy, manufacturing, medicine, philanthropy, technology and transportation.
Each column is constructed of 150 individual children’s drawings, etched in stainless steel plate. To create these “wonders”, artist Mel Chin collaborated with Architects and 1,050 schoolchildren. What looks like lace from a distance is actually laser-cut steel. Make it a point to visit this art work day or night. There is a lot to look at!
