Last night, Austin had a beautiful, community-grown New Years Eve celebration. Austin Bike Zoo, ArcAttack!, and others came out with improvements to their already-great shows, and the new star was a working, 34-foot wooden clock tower. Filled with resolutions, it later became a work of fire art. Here’s my favorite slideshow, via zAdventure on Flickr:

Some (possibly dubious) reports of minor injuries aside, this was the best New Year’s art I’ve seen. Thanks to Community Art Makers for a breathtaking project! If you’ve got photos from last night in Austin (or any other great New Year’s art), please link to them in the comments.
