About Light Year

Originally created for the Manhattan Bridge Anchorage in DUMBO, Brooklyn, in celebration of the United Nations’ declaration of 2015 as the Year of Light and Light Art, LIGHT YEAR has become an international project, with presentations in DUMBO on the First Thursday of every month, as well as in Berlin, and online.

The collaborators–Leo Kuelbs, John Ensor Parker and Glowing Bulbs–are based in Dumbo, and have been a part of almost every major projection event that has taken place on the Manhattan Bridge since 2010. Their daily interactions with the bridge and the neighborhood, as well as their internationally recognized creative achievements are at the heart of the Light Year concept and project.

Since its launch in 2015, Light Year has hosted the work of over 200 artists and curators from around the world. It is presented to the public, every first Thursday, free of charge.
