Radiant Fountains

Location: on John F. Kennedy Boulevard at George Bush Intercontinental Airport

The dynamic work, by Dennis Oppenheim establishes a vibrant and forceful presence for George Bush Intercontinental Airport, both on land and in the air.For those leaving the airport, this iconic display exudes the energy and vibrance that awaits visitors as they enter the vast city of Houston. The work also offers an eye-catching brilliance for those who are taking their first or last glimpse of Houston, from the air.

A dramatic cascade of droplets of light, falling through the center of each column, while at the same time radiating powerful burst of light energy upward, on the outer walls, is achieved through the use of environmentally sensitive, programmed L-E-D lights in all three towers.

The rhythmic action of both falling and rising light energy creates a universal structure, of enormous presence.
