Creek Show 2018 Call for Ideas Now Closed


We are very excited to announce that designers will explore a new section of Waller Creek in 2018!

The Waller Creek Conservancy’s Creek Show invites architects, landscape architects, artists, and designers to submit ideas for light-based, site-specific installations within a three block area of Waller Creek. Five of the submitted ideas will be selected by a committee of local leaders from the design and art community, to then be constructed by the selected teams. Creek Show 2018 will continue to delight and inspire the community by activating a new area along Waller Creek, between 9th St and Symphony Square, in the heart of downtown Austin. The completed installations will be open to the public for 10 days in November of 2018. Please visit to learn more about the transformation of Waller Creek.
