InLight Richmond To Be Held in Chimborazo Park, Nov. 15-16

Posted By on Mon, Jun 10, 2019 at 4:00 AM

The free event utilizes light-based art and performances while offering audiences the chance to see public art outdoors, with performances, sculpture, video and interactive projects lighting up the night. Large crowds have been known to venture out for this photogenic event.

Here's more from the press release desk:

InLight 2019 will take place at Chimborazo Park in the Church Hill neighborhood of Richmond. Artists are invited to propose projects that critically engage with the social and geographic history of this site. Two key moments in the park’s history include being the location of the largest Confederate military hospital during the Civil War and following Emancipation, hosting a Freedmen’s community for formerly enslaved African-Americans. 1708 seeks artists and projects that respond to, elaborate on, and propose new ways of understanding these complex histories.
