Georgetown to Get Lit for a Weekend, Dec. 12 to Dec. 14


This just in from the Georgetown BID:

Georgetown will be aglow for one weekend only during Georgetown Glow, Dec. 12 to 14, the new, signature winter event celebrating the holiday season organized by the Georgetown Business Improvement District. The weekend includes an innovative exhibition of light-art installations and lighting of major structures. The works will be on view from Friday, Dec. 12, to Sunday, Dec. 14, and lit nightly from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.

The Georgetown BID will host a neighborhood-wide public art exhibition that will feature the work of local, regional and international light artists in public and privately owned spaces. The site-specific works will use light in surprising, modern and impactful ways, transforming and activating spaces along M Street, the Book Hill section on the 1600 block of Wisconsin Avenue, Washington Harbour, and in office building plazas south of M Street. The Georgetown BID has retained Deirdre Ehlen MacWilliams, a public art expert and curator, to curate the exhibition. Citelum, the Paris-based global lighting firm that in 2012 established its North American headquarters in the District, is a major partner and technical advisor. Other key partners to date include Jamestown Properties, Eastbanc, Inc., The JBG Companies, MRP Realty, LSM, and M.C. Dean.
