LIGHT YEAR – NYC – Projection on Manhattan Bridge
The Manhattan Bridge comes alive with LIGHT YEAR an ongoing program of projected video art presented the First Thursday of every month. Valerie Schaller shows her projection Roses_Love with other video artists from around the globe.
Curated by John Ensor Parker, created and presented by Leo Kuelbs Collection and Glowing Bulbs.
All of the collaborators, Curator Leo Kuelbs, Artist John Ensor Parker and Creative Team Glowing Bulbs (fka 3_Search) are based in Dumbo, and have been a part of almost every major projection event that has taken place on the Manhattan Bridge since 2010. Their daily interactions with the bridge and the neighborhood, as well as their internationally recognized creative achievements are at the heart of the “Light Year” concept and project. Working with the Dumbo BID and the NYC DOT, “Light Year” is an authentic representation of the neighborhood’s relationship to the city, as well as to the greater world.
