From a press release:
” What: Art Yards, a month-long public arts project at The Yards, will culminate this weekend with a group exhibition by the renowned video projection mapping artist consortium 3_Search. Curated by NYC-based John Ensor Parker and Leo Kuelbs, the exhibition, titled “Illuminated Ops,” will feature works by Glowing Bulbs featuring John Ensor Parker, Integrated Visions, and United VJs. Illuminated Ops will turn the SE face of the former NGIA building into an 8,260 s.f. (five-story) canvas for stunning projected images. See examples of prior exhibitions here and here, and expect a teaser clip of the show on Thursday December 12th.
Like Art Yards itself, the fleeting nature of this final installation is perhaps its biggest draw. Since mid-November, Art Yards, which is co-sponsored by The Yards and the Capitol Riverfront BID, has transformed the monolithic government building into a large-scale public arts spectacle, receiving widespread praise and raising DC’s profile as a city for the arts. The installations will disappear when the building is demolished this winter.
