Become part of the art in this exciting new installation at WAM!

Through January 20, 2019

Silhouetted children stand in veil of light and color

Enter a canvas of moving light and color and connect with works from the WAM collection in a new way! Imagine immersing yourself in a stained glass window or a painting and being surrounded by—and even part of—a cascade of shimmering, radiant, moving light and color. lumina is made of dozens of strips of illuminated silk that reflect projected images of five WAM works of art. Visitors walk through the silk and become part of the animated color and light. Perfect for all ages, it's an irresistible setting for photographing oneself, family, and friends!

lumina is designed by artist Sam Okerstrom-Lang and Vanessa Till Hooper, and produced by LuminArtz, a non-profit organization that produces the ILLUMINUS festival in Boston. lumina is free with Museum admission.

lumina is funded in part by The Donald and Mary Melville Contemporary Art Fund.
