Little Italy will light up again for
Light City 2018!
Neighborhood Lights 2018, an immersive public artist-in-residency program that spreads the magic of Light City Baltimore into neighborhoods throughout Baltimore City, begins Friday, April 6 through Sunday, April 8, 2018 with many projects potentially on extended view through the festival. Neighborhood Lights is part of Light City Baltimore, organized by the Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts. Selected artists-in-residence work directly with a neighborhood to create an illuminated public project within that community.
About Neighborhood Lights 2017
Dolce far niente - In the heart of Little Italy at the intersection of High and Fawn Streets, an Italian piazza complete with a cascading light fountain, live theater, a lantern parade and pageantry was created to emulate an authentic Italian piazza. Laure Drogul, our resident artist, also created a canopy of colorful lanterns by repurposing plastic gallon milk jugs. The lanterns are still shining bright on High Street, creating a buzz and destination for visitors and locals.
About Neighborhood Lights 2016:
Resident artist Joe Reinsel, says: "I really enjoyed creating Il Tartufo Lucente for Light City and being part of the neighborhood for a short time. After the piece was installed, my favorite part (besides the work itself) was hearing your stories that would develop from the images on the church. Thank you for sharing. It gave me a glimpse into the strong heritage that has been part of this neighborhood for many years."
