The first picture of Saturday 30th October's 'Cathedral in Lights' Project on Lichfield Cathedral. The event by externalGalleries (Sound Artist David Harper, New Media Artist Andy McKeown and Arist Peter Walker) saw the stunning iconic facade of the Cathedral awash with colour - as Andy's collection of 560 images of the interior stained glass window projected via a kaleidoscopic performance. Davids hauntingly beautiful music accompanied the event throughout. Peter Walker who oversaw development of the project "externalGalleries is a project to bring stunning art out onto the street. We work to develop such projects and the projection onto the Cathedral is a fantastic way to share art in new and diverse locations. We have some major projects being planned and we hope that the Cathedral in Lights has enticed peoples tastebuds".
