The Beacon

28-foot-tall illuminated sculpture serves as a "signifier” to identify the crossroad between Blanco Road and Fulton Street in the Beacon Hill neighborhood. With its perforated design on all sides and illuminated from within like a luminaria (Mexican tin lamp), it becomes a “beacon” at night.
