ABOUT LIGHT YEAR
From April 2015 – April 2016, the Manhattan Bridge comes alive with “Light Year,” a one-year program of projected video art presented the First Thursday of every month. In honor of the United Nations’ declaration of 2015 as The Year of Light and Light Art, “Light Year” includes a well-rounded program of video artists from around the globe. Curated, created and presented by Leo Kuelbs Collection, John Ensor Parker and Glowing Bulbs (aka 3_Search), “Light Year” reveals surprising connections and highlights DUMBO’s role as an important hub for technology and the arts.
