Hat tip, Tif Robinette: light show/performance art event PROject proJECT returns Oct. 5. From my Inbox to you:
The 2nd Annual PROject proJECT Light Based Public Art Event
Friday, October 5th, 2012
PROject proJECT is a one night only event that will spread projection, video, light-based art works and performance, over one and a half blocks of downtown Roanoke, Virginia.
Over twenty local, regional, national, and international artists are collaborating to transform the ordinary atmosphere of our downtown business district into an extraordinary atmosphere of visual spectacle and activity.
Interactive works, projection mapping, performance, video, film, performance, music, slide shows, and hand-held projections will be featured to transform our downtown like you’ve never seen before.
We are collaborating and community partners with CAZ: Autonomous Zone in Cornwall, UK, and The O. Winston Link Museum and Community High School in Roanoke, Virginia to create a conversation about the importance of ephemeral art in public space.
We’ll be closing off the block of Norfolk Ave between Market and Campbell streets to create a pedestrian friendly atmosphere and admission is FREE.
