Beginning Friday, Buffalo Bayou Partnership presents a new way to encounter the Buffalo Bayou Park Cistern. Designed by local artist and engineer Kelly O’Brien of Fenris, Cistern Illuminated features undulating lights that provide a unique perspective on this cavernous underground space. The custom temporary lighting will amplify the reservoir’s 221 columns, adding a new dimension to the reflection in the glassy water below. Cistern Illuminated ends January 8. Reservations for the opening weekend are limited. No children under 9 years old are permitted. Tickets are $10 — seniors, the military, and college students receive a $2 discount — and are available here.
