Austin's Moonlight Towers

Erected in the 1890s, Austin's Moonlight Towers are an ingenious system that illuminated the nights of the Texas capital in the early days of electricity.

They still bathe our city in artificial moonlight from dusk till dawn. Six lamps at the top of each tower create the famous moonlight glow.

Today, 17 of the original 31 towers remain. They are official Texas State Landmarks and are listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

The Moonlight Towers are beloved by Austinites.

DETAILS
DETAILS

Austin Moonlight is Cynthia Hannon and Daniel Barnekow, a married couple of Austinites who fell in love under the glow of Moonlight Tower No. 1., in Travis Heights. Laura Menghini, the creator of the TV show Marsha Has Class, is our Downtown Austin Moonlight Tower Ambassador.

About Art Block™

Art Block™ is a deep, clear, and flawless synthetic polymer. It looks exactly like thick, perfect glass. And it's gorgeous.

Far more than a frame, Art Block™ is an integral part of each Moonlight Tower piece. The optics are brilliant: light reflects within the acrylic and illuminates the image, giving it a three-dimensional effect. The reflection “lifts” each blueprint into space and gives the image a fascinating, prominent character. The edges are sharp and polished and finished beautifully.

Art Block's™ 21st-century cleanliness and solidity are the perfect foil for the 19th-century industrial blueprints. A deep clarity enhances the brilliance and depth of the geometric white lines and type. The Blueprint Blue color is simply gorgeous in this medium. These pieces demand viewers' attention.

Art Block™ pieces include French cleats for wall mounting.
