Using Light in Public Art

Using Light in Public Art

The Biennial of the Americans featured an incredible light and music event Saturday, Sept 29, that rocked Denver’s Civic Center Park. Sonic Design Studio based in Bogota, Colombia is a team of sound and laser designers, biologists, and musicians collaborating to bring awareness to the "rapidly disappearing Amazon rain forest" (Froyd, Susan, "Jaguara Roars from the Rain Forest to Burning Man to Denver", Westword 25 September 2019).

This enormous project called “Jaguara” featured an enormous digital light projection onto the City & County building that was one of the largest light projects I've ever seen.

Huge congratulations to this years Biennial team, you smashed it out of the park commissioning this project for our City!

Out of Place: The Power of Art in Unexpected Spaces | An Evening with Cheryl Haines

On February 6, 2019 The University of San Francisco hosts a talk by curator Cheryl Haines on art in unexpected spaces, a topic near and dear to my heart. The talk features two International public art exhibits in San Francisco from 2014. Haines will illustrate with two important projects, Ai Wei Wei’s project on Alcatraz in 2014, and Andy Goldworthy’s three projects in Golden Gate Park.
