PW-city-hall

You may walk by City Hall and Dilworth Park every day, but you have surely never seen it like this: A visual art studio is transforming the west facade of the iconic building into a huge light installation.

Klip Collective is creating the giant light-up show during opening night of the eight-day 2015 Red Bull Art of Can exhibition at Dilworth Park.

“Playing off the municipal building’s masonry history and sacred geometry, the projection mapping design will be a fully interactive projection piece, enabling the public to directly control what is showcased on the City Hall building,” according to a spokesperson for the project. Audience members will be able to “remix” the content on City Hall to create unique images.

 

The opening weekend events will take place on October 2 and 3 from 7 pm to 10 pm, and are free to attend. The Red Bull Art of Can 2015 exhibit will run through Thursday, October 8, and will feature 30 finalists’ work that was hand selected by judges from the art community. There will be a variety of media, including sculptures, paintings, animations, and video clips.
