Central Atlanta Progress, the Atlanta Downtown Improvement District, and Dashboard Friday announced the second year of PRISM: Winter Lights at Woodruff Park, a two-month exhibition displaying light-based, water-inspired works by artists from around the country. PRISM is free and open to the public, and runs December 5, 2020, through January 31, 2021.
“We’re confident this stunning exhibition will bring some much-needed light and activity to Woodruff Park and Downtown,” Ansley Whipple, Woodruff Park project manager, said in a press release. “It will create a space for friends and family to safely gather outside during the holiday season to celebrate the imagination of local creatives and their top-tier public art.”
The second year of PRISM: Winter Lights will explore the theme of water and feature three light-based landmark sculptures installed on the park’s main lawn. Additionally, Arts & Entertainment Atlanta will pilot a projection mapping effort that showcases animated artwork by local artists on the park’s International Peace Fountain water wall.
“Being invited back into Woodruff Park is a privilege, and a testament to the power of art in activating our shared public spaces,” Beth Malone, Dashboard executive director, said in the release. “Each of the works in this year’s show is truly monumental, showcasing the immense artistic talent in our city. We can’t wait to share it.”
Park patrons are reminded that physical distance must be maintained between them and anyone outside of their party and are encouraged to follow the C.D.C’s guidelines for visiting parks.
