LIGHT THE NIGHT with Arts Fest Friday

BL_ProgramGuide.inddJoin us Friday, September 9, for the region’s first glimpse of the Breathing Lights public art project, coming to Albany, Schenectady, and Troy in October 2016. Artist Adam Frelin will be here to greet visitors and “turn on the lights” during this free event.

The Breathing Lights proposal won the Bloomberg Philanthropies Public Art Challenge, and awarded a $1 million prize. This unprecedented, multi-city installation will transform public streets into an evocative experience and provide a platform to reinvigorate partners around the Capital Region’s most visible symptom of decades of disinvestment. Working with dozens of community and private-sector partners, Breathing Lights includes eight months of programming and events, including youth media projects, building reclamation clinics, community arts presentations, gallery talks, policy discussions and more.

Entertainment includes:

  • Light installation by artist Brent Pickerd titled “Flora Lux”
  • Music by D.J. Tall Matt
  • Beer tasting from Glens Falls brewery Common Roots
  • Surprise street performances
  • Children’s Activities from On Deck Saratoga
  • Much, much more

Presented by SaratogaArtsFest, Saratoga County Chamber of Commerce, and Spring Street Gallery.
