More About the Artist
"Light Channels" by San Antonio artist Bill FitzGibbons utilizes LED lighting systems to create slowly-changing color patterns onto surrounding columns and sidewalks. In addition to lighting, the project includes nine aluminum-capped sculptural columns at both bridge entrances, creating a “colonnade” effect. Sidewalks and rip-rap were repaired and concrete columns were cleaned and painted a sky-blue color. This project demonstrated how public art connects our community, sparks revitalization, and provides functional and dynamic solutions which enliven our built-environment. The project transforms highly-traveled but blighted areas into passages that encourage pedestrian activity and promotes revitalization east of downtown San Antonio.
