Let There Be Light

Location:

Community-Wide

Event Type(s): Arts / Theatre / Music, Special Events / Holiday
Organization: Piedmont Virginia Community College
Description: The 11th annual Let There Be Light celebrates the approach of the winter solstice and the longest night of the year with light-based art installations created by a selection of some of the most imaginative local and regional artists. The exhibition illuminates and transforms the darkened grounds surrounding the V. Earl Dickinson Building for one night only.

Over the past 10 years, this annual tradition has grown to entice thousands of visitors of all ages to bundle up with coats and mittens, pick up a map of exhibits, and set out to explore the landscape in search of both large-scale and hidden installations that invite interaction, evoke wonder and delight, and inspire reflection.

Let There Be Light is curated by local artist James Yates, whose primary aim in his work is to “re-enchant our experience of the world.” Visitors to the exhibition are encouraged to bring a flashlight and come dressed as “enlightened beings,” decorating themselves with light to add to the festivities. Hot chocolate, warm cider, and other refreshments will be provided.
