Festival of Lights

Tonight we finally made it downtown to check out the Festival of Lights as part of the Pittsburgh Celebrates Glass thing. They were interesting. I did my best to take pictures of them and they didn't turn out too bad.

This is from the website:

From June 5 - July 1, the Pittsburgh Festival of Lights-powered by Duquesne Light, will showcase the unique work of Artlumiere, founded by noted French artist Lucette deRugy. By using state of the art technology to project large scale images, de Rugy takes advantage of existing architecture to transform the facades of buildings into true works of art. Working with designer Corentine Buron, she's brought these colorful, distinct exhibits to sites throughout the world. This unique type of lighting has been featured in Paris, Singapore, Kobe, Japan, but never has Artlumiere produced an installation of this scale in the U.S. You don't want to miss this spectacular illumination!!!
