The the Museum of Fine Arts Houston and the Buffalo Bayou Partnership came together and organized the very first art installation in the Houston Cistern. If you're new to my blog or are unfamiliar with the Cistern, you can see photos of it here in my previous post.
Rain by Magdalena Fernandez consists of a light show that is projected throughout the entire space with an acoustic soundtrack that is meant to mimic the sounds of a rain shower. It runs on a loop and the tour takes you around the outer perimeter of the Cistern to get different view points as you walk around.
This seems to be the first of a series of changing art installations in the Cistern and I'm excited to see what's to come in the future. Rain is on view until June 4th. If you go on a Thursday, admission is free so be sure to reserve your tickets to make sure you save a spot!
