Carrie Blast Furnaces
Showcasing eleven unique multimedia installations created by a diverse group of local artists and engineers, LightPlay will be on display at the Carrie Blast Furnaces during select evenings from September 10 through October 1.
LightPlay features a range of video projection and light-based installations that engage with the site’s intricate structural characteristics, cavernous pathways and unique industrial aesthetic. This one-of-a-kind experience includes immersive light and sound installations, digital video artworks, and illuminated sculptures that transform the former blast furnace into a sensorial maze. Danny Bracken, Ian Brill, Aaron Henderson, Ryder Henry, Lori Hepner, Ricardo Iamuuri, Shohei Katayama, Todd Keebs, Julie Mallis, Projectile Objects, and Alisha Wormsley have contributed artworks to this exhibition.
A project of Rivers of Steel Arts, LightPlay is made possible through the generous support of Eaton Corporation.
Tickets are $9 / person. Tickets for this special exhibition are timed to help to maintain adequate social distancing throughout the evening.
