Your City in Lights open day

by 52 Weeks of Art

Saturday August 15th saw the second and final summer open day for involvement in the Son et Lumiere event. Held at the Guildroom in the city centre the day saw the project artists on hand to discuss the project and offer opportunities to become involved in the artwork production.
125 people attended on the day, joining in adding their faces to the Wordplay Project, alongside helping in the production of the interactive artwork which will feature on the Market Street facade of the Johnson Birthplace Museum. The event also saw Louise Morgan, a young artist from Lichfield taking the opportunity to join the artists and become part of the team for the production of the event.
Saturday also saw the final light test for the September Event, with passers by treated to a sneak preview of the visuals for the event.
