Wortham Theater Center Lighting - Revisited 2017

Wortham Theater Lighting
June 2017

Last week, I went to a recital at Wortham Theater Center for my cousin's dancin' school. As I walked across Fish Plaza to the south entrance of the building, I was pleased to experience the lighting project by Urban Architecture completed in 2010 with Michael J. Smith - it is still viable seven years later marking the test of time!

A striking photo by me if I say so myself!
