We need one of those over Post Oak and Westheimer. And one at Highland Village. Another at Allen Parkway. That would help get pedestrians out at all those locations. How hard is that to figure out????

Waterway to Welcome New Art Benches

 

 

Six new art benches will soon be scattered around The Woodlands Waterway as the second phase of the public art project is completed in March.

 

The first phase of the project was installed in 2014, when The Woodlands Arts Council solicited submissions of bench designs from artists around the world and picked eight from the dozens of applicants. The aesthetic, yet functional, fixtures selected represent diverse tastes - from the concrete slab bench and large, colorful balls that light up at Waterway Square to the vibrant family of birds near The Woodlands Mall to the complex, wooden structure by the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion.

 

"We had a really successful initial phase one," said Theresa Terrell, a member of The Woodlands Arts Council. "We've had a lot of positive feedback about the existing benches."

Building on the reception to the first phase, the council launched the second phase of the project last year, receiving 70 applications from artists to design the six benches that will be placed around Town Green Park and along the Waterway. A committee narrowed it down to three-to-five artists for each location and the sponsors who elected to underwrite the cost of each location chose the final design from those selections.
