The Creek Show at Waterloo Greenway returns next month, and organization just announced an all-new slate of installations.
The annual show is free + comprised of glowing artworks created by local artists, landscape architects, and designers. Let’s learn a bit more about the pieces being featured this year.

This installation is just what it sounds like: a collection of sculptural, glowing pants. The artist drew inspiration for this piece from a dream featuring whispering + frolicking pants.
Enter the Dragonfly | Odonata
This piece, which showcases enormous, luminescent dragonflies perched on rocks, is meant to draw attention to the natural ecological diversity of Waller Creek.
GOOD~VIBRATIONS | Studio 5-1-2
Walk through this sparkling installation featuring sculptural stalagmites + stalactites emblazoned with mirrors and lit up by spotlights.
Inventories | Lawrence Group
This installation pays homage to the late UT professor Joseph Jones, and is made from hundreds of used plastic bottles taken directly from local water sources.

A corridor of porta potties is tranformed into a magical tunnel of disco lights + LED strips and panels.
