Guided Tour through the Installation with the artists

THE PROJECT:

The Prismatic Lightscape at Occidental Park is a spatial experience that transforms its surrounding environment into a lively and welcoming public place.  Rather than an object or individual performance piece, the Lightscape acts as a backdrop below the canopy of the park’s London Plane trees to the brick clad ground plane, totems and art as well as daytime activities.

The Prismatic Lightscape at Occidental Park is part of the artSparks 2010 program.  To learn more about what is going on in Occidental Park this summer, please visit the artSparks 2010 website.
