Public Art along Buffalo Bayou

Permanent Art


Temporary Art on View


On display through September 8, 2019

Now located at The Water Works in Buffalo Bayou Park (105 Sabine Street).

WE ARE THE ASTEROID III is a conceptual artwork by Brooklyn-based artist Justin Brice Guariglia.  One of a series, the repurposed highway sign features text by Rice University professor Timothy Morton.  Instead of alerting viewers to road conditions, the solar-powered LED message board features aphorisms in the form of poetry, metaphor and humor, calling attention to ecological issues and prompting conversations about today’s planetary crisis.

WE ARE THE ASTEROID III is presented by Buffalo Bayou Partnership
