All of Georgetown will be aglow during the new, signature winter event celebrating the holiday season, Georgetown GLOW (December 12-14). Organized by the Georgetown Business Improvement District (BID), the weekend includes an innovative exhibition of bold public light-art installations and lighting of major structures. The works will be on view from Friday, December 12 - Sunday, December 14 and lit nightly from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.
LSM is proud to join the Georgetown BID in sponsoring a neighborhood-wide public art exhibition that will feature the work of local, regional and international artists in public and privately-owned spaces. Other key partners include Jamestown Properties, Eastbanc, Inc., The JBG Companies, and MRP Realty. The site-specific works will use light in surprising, modern and impactful ways, transforming and activating spaces in Georgetown.
“Georgetown is one of D.C.’s most historic neighborhoods and a premier destination for holiday shopping and entertainment. We want to start and cultivate an annual tradition using the power, beauty and innovation of light against the backdrop of our historic district, to create a unique experience for the community and for holiday visitors,” said Joe Sternlieb, CEO of the Georgetown BID.
The installation hosted in the atrium of LSM's above 3333 M Street office consists of moving figures projected through a translucent volume, viewed by the public below. The art is created by re:collective. The DC-based, interdisciplinary group of visual artists and designers who collaborate on experimental projects exploring various topics, including social communication, the dichotomy between language and meaning, and the relationship between the urban and suburban landscape.
