The Front Yard Turns on Forever! Oct 18, 2013

Come and join us this Friday night (October 18, 2013) and celebrate the new permanent, outdoor installation at the Burchfield Penny Art Gallery (1300 Elmwood Ave).  This installation is the first of it’s kind in the world, so there is no excuse NOT to come to the party!

There is going to be food trucks (US and a couple of those other guys) and a live musical performance by DME (led by Tomás Henriques).  Then at sunset the three projection towers will turn on forever.  This new installation is transforming the Gallery’s facade into a 24/7/365 media gallery!

This is the “worlds first permanent environmentally-responsive, outdoor audio and video environment” and will feature works by project co-designer Brian Milbrand, Steina, Barbara Lattanzi, Meg Knowles & Chris Gallant.

For more information about the event, including the inspiration behind the installation and a lot of technical & architectural information check out the link here.
