Georgetown will become all aGLOW tonight! Visit Georgetown for the opening night of #GeorgetownGLOW, a free light art experience Dec. 1 - Jan. 6, with works lit 5 - 10pm, nightly. . Entre les rangs - located at Georgetown Park Plaza 3276 M Street - is a sensory stroll through an urban field. Visitors are immediately drawn to the expanse of long, waving crystalline stems planted in the heart of Georgetown. As they wander along the winding path, they’re rewarded with lights that echo their walk. The installation is a tribute to fields of wheat that shimmer in the wind as the seasons pass, with thousands of flexible white stems topped with white reflectors that capture the rhythm of the surrounding urban space and reflect its life. The installation’s changing nature—depending on wind, precipitation, light and human interaction—encourages visitors to return. Creation + Execution is by Kanva Architecture and Production is by Quartier Des Spectacles Partnership of Montreal, Canada. #georgetownglow #georgetowndc #georgetown #acreativedc #igdc #mydccool #lightart #art #artinthedistrict #Repost @wwwchris with @get_repost ・・・ Entre Les Rangs by @kanva.architecture and @quartierdesspectacles_mtl.

“Each artwork is responsive to the historic and unequaled landscape of Georgetown, and conveys a sense of magic and warmth in D.C.," said Deidre Ehlen MacWilliams, curator of Georgetown GLOW.

Visitors will be able to spot different lights, colors and sounds within the installations; some will also be interactive.

"As in years past, GLOW brings a renewed light to all during the holiday season," said MacWilliams.
