Light Yards, the DC region’s premier outdoor public light art installation, returns for its fourth year at The Yards, with two must-see, worldwide traveling light installations, The Pool, by New York-based Jen Lewin Studio and Angels of Freedom, by Israel-based OGE Group.
Making its first appearance in Washington, DC, The Poolwill invite visitors to hop, skip, and jump across 106 interactive circular pads of light, roughly 3 feet in diameter and 2.5 inches tall. As multiple visitors play in The Pool, their movements will come together to create a giant canvas of shifting and fading colors in mesmerizing patterns. Since 2012, The Pool has traveled to more than 40 major installations worldwide and clocked millions of user steps. The Poolhas been exhibited at festivals including SXSW in Austin, Texas, and shown in Berlin, Jerusalem, West Palm Beach and Baltimore.
A beautiful and social sculptural installation, Angels of Freedom aims to reveal the inner beauties of everyone by visually turning visitors into real-life angels. Visitors will be invited to pose with five giant, neon-colored wings and white halos as a reminder that everybody counts and deserves love. Visiting Washington, DC, for the first time, Angels of Freedomhas traveled across the globe with invitations to exhibit at locations including Beijing, Moscow, Berlin, Amsterdam and Jerusalem.
After experiencing the wonders of Light Yards, guests can extend their evening at more than a dozen great places to eat and drink at The Yards to officially toast the 2018 holiday season.
