Texas embraces public art

Fish Bellies by Joe O'Connell and Blessing Hancock Public Art

The new art installation “Fish Bellies”, at Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas, has the entire campus, and world, talking.

Designed by Joe O’Connell and Blessing Hancock Public Art, Fish Bellies is made of frosted acrylic and displays large biomorphic forms.

Inspired by the social and biological diversity of the nearby San Marcos River, Fish Bellies aims to draw similarities between the ecological life of the river and the diverse student body of the university.

During the day, the installation bares translucent shells, while at night, it transforms into a biolumenescent artscape.

Students and visitors alike can climb on top of Fish Bellies or into it, finding shelter and comfort inside the public art piece.
