Market Square Park Glows With Newest Public Art Installation (created by NCF Alum Falon Mihalic)

From Houston Press, January 6, 2021

Something is glowing at Market Square Park, and it’s worth the trip to find out why. The Houston Downtown Management District has installed a new permanent public artwork in the historic park. Meander, a series of raised cast-concrete troughs filled with glossy pigmented resin, mimics Buffalo Bayou’s physical form and route, giving park visitors a new view of the familiar body of water. The site-specific sculpture, which is part seating area, part playful artwork, was conceived and created by Falon Mihalic, founder of Falon Land StudioMeander is now permanently on view.

Situated between the dog run and the events lawn, Meander’s concrete forms are set at varying heights for sitting, interaction and exploration. Adult visitors will be able to enjoy park programming or watch children from the bench-height pieces that face the lawn, while kids can explore the smaller-scale works. The surfacing around the piece features a concentric pattern that invites further discovery. At night, the serpentine structures are lit from the interior to create an alluring glow.
