Creek Show 2018 designs burst with invention
The Creek Show, the annual procession of light art staged by the Waller Creek Conservancy, turned a corner of sorts last year.
What started as mostly elegant minimalist efforts along downtown Austin’s eastern waterway went maximalist in 2017 with masses of pink flags for “Night Garden” by Eric Leshinsky (lead) with Colter Sonneville, Megahn Skornia and Wenjie Zhao.
Some of the fifth year’s designs promise an experience on that level for during free event planned for further upstream Nov. 9-17. Last year, more than 20,000 people drifted along the creek, sampling the kind of attractions planned for a transformed Waller Creek.
