Luman Nature 

1708 Gallery's fourth annual InLight installation, scheduled for Oct. 21, will illuminate Richmond's greatest — and sometimes darkest — resource: the James River. This year, 18 artists, performers and conceptualists will install light-based creations along buildings, bridges and the shore in a large area stretching from Dominion Resources, past the American Civil War Center at Tredegar Iron Works to the Federal Reserve. "It's an urban site but it's also tied into nature," says 1708's executive director, Emily Smith. "There are components at work along the river that would be interesting to any artist." This year's crop was selected by Matthew Lyons, the curator of the Kitchen, one of New York's premier experimental performance spaces. If previous installments are any indication, the lighted lantern parade, kicking things off at 7 p.m., once again will prove to be the big InLight crowd pleaser. Interested parties can go to 1708gallery.org/inlight for instructions on how to make their own glowing creations.
