The Buffalo Bayou Partnership has come up with a nifty way to say "Happy Holidays," and it's the perfect gift for the guy or gal who has everything. You've probably seen the Lunar Cycle Lighting, those amazing blue lights, along the Sabine Promenade that run beside Buffalo Bayou.
You can support the expansion of that lighting of bridges, trails and architectural features along Buffalo Bayou Park and get something for a friend by ponying up $500, which entitles you to have your special friend's name engraved on a nameplate at the base of one of the 455 new blue light fixtures.
As the partnership says, "Dedicating a Lunar Cycle light fixture for a loved one is unique, chic and will literally shine light on one of Houston’s most treasured recreational, cultural and environmental spaces." Proceeds from this program will help the partnership raise the remaining dollars (just under $2 million) in its $58 million capital campaign.
The Lunar Cycle Lighting is an environmental concept designed by artist Stephen Korns of Amherst, Mass., and international lighting firm L'Observatoire, based in New York. The lighting along the Sandy Reed Trail will transition from white to blue to white as the moon waxes and wanes each month. The lights will be turned on early in 2014.
