"We asked ourselves, 'During COVID-19, how are we creating spaces using art for people to congregate and connect in a safe way?"
The upheaval of our social and physical world due to the COVID-19 pandemic has caused us all to reassess the ways in which we interact, both physically and emotionally. We have been forced to find new ways to connect, to care, love, grow, and appreciate art.
LightWave promotes a physically distanced but socially connected interactive experience that provides a modern creative outlet for people to work and play together in a time when health depends on personal space.
Lightwave was installed in Downtown Glendale, directly across from the Americana, and in front of the Museum of Neon Art from October 9th through November 12th, 2021. This temporary interactive art installation was funded through the "Art Happens Anywhere" grant from the Glendale Arts & Culture Commission's Urban Art Program.
Lightwave was conceived and installed by the artist team, Lightriders, and produced by 11:11.
