Whoever says all the wonderfully creative, evocative and thought provoking art installations can only be found in Manhattan- clearly NEVER hung at LUMEN fest….a video & projection art festival on Staten Island…
So just what can eager kidlets and their hungry for somthing other than ices and reruns on TV parents do this Saturday night? Come down and watch videos and projection art, hang out with friends, see performance art on the pier curated by Grace Exhibition Space. Projections will be on the inside and outside of buildings, as well as trees, and anything else you can imagine! See, hear, interact — at LUMEN. They'll also have a small gallery of artist prints for sale!
So essentially Staten ISland Families can enjoy a perfect Summer evening all for FREE.
WHEN: LUMEN 2011 is on Saturday, June 25, 6pm-12am
WHERE: The National Lighthouse Museum on SI a 5 minute walk from the SI Ferry Terminal (volunteers will be on hand to help you find your way to LUMEN)
