Light Themed Art Installation at The Yards: Two-Week-Long Installation Melding Light, Sculpture and Music to Create Wonder

Light Yards: the innovative art installation spanning two weeks and three weekends at The Yards Park will kick off on Saturday, February 20 from 7pm to 10pm with a large-scale projection mapping visual display set to the beat of a live DJ set. The event’s focal point and medium for the light display will be a 48 x 24 x 20 foot Point Cloud, and 12 x 12 x 12 foot Cube, constructed of industrial steel with illuminated white cubes designed by New York based light artist and architect John Ensor Parker. These light sculptures will remain throughout the two weeks and will be joined by giant luminescent rabbits by artist Amanda Parer starting on Saturday, February 27. Kicking off their US tour, families are invited from 3pm to 6pm to delight in the sight of the enormous glowing bunnies, while enjoying children’s activities, including a giant Lite-Brite. That evening from 6pm to 10pm, The Yards Park will again meld music and art with a performance by electric violinist DJ Manifesto. In addition, food and beverage will be available for purchase on Saturday the 20th and 27th during the featured events.
