Capitol Hill’s Seattle Asian Art Museum will join buildings around the world in a global display of light art this weekend for Ukraine.
The Enlightenment event will light up the art deco facades of the Volunteer Park museum with works from more than 35 illumination artists who have contributed animations “reflecting solidarity with the Ukrainians and oppressed people around the world.”
“The artworks created will be displayed on the facades of The Seattle Asian Art Museum and dozens of buildings in cities around the world,” the producers, Seattle-based creators of the Borealis – a festival of light events and Maxin10sity of Budapest, say.
“Working with the theme ‘Enlightenment’, artists were asked to create content that is meaningful to the current war in Ukraine. Over the past two weeks everyone donated many hours of artistic skills to bring this all together.”
In Seattle, the display will light up SAAM on Capitol Hill on Sunday night from 7 PM to 10 PM and the Seattle Center Armory through the weekend.
