WINSTON-SALEM LIGHT PROJECT, PRESENTED BY UNCSA, TO RETURN TO DOWNTOWN NOV. 16-20
“One City Block: Urban Revelations” Is Focus of 2010
The Winston-Salem Light Project will return to downtown Winston-Salem Nov. 16-20 with “One City Block: Urban Revelations.” This year’s project will examine reflection: reflecting on the urban environment, and reflecting on one’s self in the urban environment.
Free and open to the public, the 2010 Winston-Salem Light Project is a multimedia public art presentation dedicated to using technology and innovation to elevate awareness of the urban environment, while providing a unique visual experience.
Now in its third year, the Light Project will use the downtown Fourth Street block between Cherry and Marshall streets as the canvas, focusing on multiple locations. The project will be visible continuously from sunset to 11 p.m. nightly.
The Winston-Salem Light Project is presented annually by the University of North Carolina School of the Arts (UNCSA) School of Design and Production, and is led by Norman Coates, director of lighting at UNCSA.
The 2010 Winston-Salem Light Project will “re-imagine” the downtown area, including exteriors of the Winston-Salem Journal building, the Stevens Center, the Chatham Building, and the Nissen Building, as well as trees lining Fourth Street and the pedestrian bridge crossing Cherry Street.
The 2010 Winston-Salem Light Project was designed by five college seniors in the UNCSA School of Design and Production, under the supervision of Norman Coates. A sixth college senior is the production electrician, while a sophomore is the master electrician. Non-senior lighting students provide the technical crew for the project.
