Ballroom Luminoso: San Antonio Freeway Underpass Transformed Into a Beautiful Gathering Space

by , 05/20/13

Ballroom Luminoso, a new public artwork by Joe O’Connell + Blessing Hancock, was recently installed in a freeway underpass in San Antonio, TX. Composed of six brilliantly lit, color-changing chandeliers, the sculptures are clad in recycled bike parts gleaned from bike co-ops and collectives across the country. Through their use of materials and refined forms, the piece melds grandeur with a sense of neighborhood rejuvenation.
