“February 20 – March 6, 2016 at The Yards

LIGHT YARDS: A Two-Week-Long Installation Melding Light, Sculpture and Music to Create Wonder!

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

Giant luminescent rabbits by artist Amanda Parer will be on display Saturday, February 27. Kicking off her 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.

Enjoy this unique sensory experience with family and friends, and complete your evening with a meal at one of the many restaurants located within walking distance at The Yards.

Light Yards is free and open to the public. Cameras are welcome, media can RSVP by contacting Clare Zenczak at [email protected]
