Help Lexington Shine Bright: Luminosity Community Light Bulb Drive

luminosity 500

LEXINGTON, Ky. (11/4/13) — From now until Dec. 31, the Lexington Art League will be collecting used, incandescent light bulbs to prepare for a special project that will brighten up downtown Lexington.

LAL is on the hunt to collect 10,000 incandescent light bulbs that will be part of a large-scale interactive sculpture of light that will illuminate Triangle Park this winter.

Internationally renowned artists Caitlind r.c. Brown and Wayne Garrett will be fabricating this piece of art with the help of Bluegrass Community and Technical College students in the BCTC welding program. Since incandescent light bulbs can’t be recycled, they are turning them into a project that the whole community can enjoy.

According to the LAL’s website, the sculpture uses a combination of LED lights and motion sensors to create rippling light effects that respond directly to the viewer. The sculpture of light will be ready to view Feb. 21 through Mar. 31, and will be creating dazzling light effects throughout the heart of Lexington.

You can drop off your extra light bulbs at one of four places in Lexington:

Habitat for Humanity RESTORE
451 Southland Dr.
10 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Saturday

100 Midland Avenue
