A well-known Houston landmark recently got a makeover. The clock tower downtown in Market Square was transformed by Houston Artist Jo Ann Fleischhauer into a piece called “What Time is It?” From now through March, the clock shifts from merely a chiming timepiece tolling every hour to a permanent art installation and venue for performances. Houston Public Media’s Ernie Manouse went down to Market Square to learn more along with the artist and Claudia Schmuckli director of the Blaffer Museum, which helped fund the project.

You can learn more about the clock tower art project on Arts InSight with Ernie Manouse Thurs., Oct. 10, at 7 p.m. on Houston PBS.
