InLight Richmond 2014 to light up Monroe Park

More details to come but it’ll definitely brighten up a dark night.

Exciting news for residents of the Fan as one of the most unique festivals in Richmond will light up Richmond’s oldest public park this November.

From the Press Release.

Organized by 1708 Gallery, InLight Richmond is a public exhibition of light-based art and performances. Each year, InLight Richmond invites artists to respond to a particular neighborhood in our diverse city, attracting audiences to unique areas of Richmond. InLight Richmond 2014 will be held on Friday, November 21 in Monroe Park, one of Richmond’s most historically significant public spaces. The juror for 2014 is Denise Markonish, Curator at Mass MoCA.

InLight 2014 will kick off with the Community Lantern Parade and will feature performances, sculpture, large-format projections, and interactive projects that will illuminate pathways, walls, sidewalks, green spaces, trees, benches, building facades, and more, in and around the park.

InLight Richmond was created in 2008 on the occasion of 1708 Gallery’s 30th birthday to celebrate 30 years of engaging the community. Thus was born the idea of a one-night, free, public art exhibition that would offer Richmond the opportunity to engage with contemporary art outside the gallery walls and to experience the city in new and unexpected ways.
