PRISM: Winter Lights Outdoor Art Exhibit Returns to Woodruff Park for a Third Year with Expansion to Peachtree Center
Woodruff Park and Peachtree Center partner with Dashboard to curate light-based artworks in Downtown Atlanta
The Atlanta Downtown Improvement District (ADID) and Peachtree Center, the iconic Downtown Atlanta office development, announce the third year of PRISM: Winter Lights, a two-month exhibition curated by Dashboard, displaying light-based works by national and local artists. This year, PRISM has expanded to include artwork in the Plaza at Peachtree Center in addition to Woodruff Park.
“We’re excited to expand this impressive light installation to Downtown’s iconic Peachtree Center,” said A.J. Robinson, President of the Atlanta Downtown Improvement District and Central Atlanta Progress. “This year we’ll have two programmed spaces for friends and family to gather outside during the holiday season to celebrate the imagination and creativity of top-tier public art.”
The third year of PRISM: Winter Lights will feature large-scale artworks by Dan Lam and Fabian Williams on the north end of Woodruff Park by the International Peace Fountain. Also lighting the north end of the Park will be a text-based, neon art piece, curated by Alice Lovelace and featuring words from one of Atlanta’s best known poets, Theresa Davis. Arts & Entertainment Atlanta will provide additional holiday lighting to the area, creating even more cheer and vibrancy to the city’s core. Installations by InKyoung Chun will add colorful illumination in The Plaza at Peachtree Center.
“As part of the iconic, center of Downtown, we’re thrilled to join ADID and Dashboard in illuminating Atlanta’s urban core for the holiday season,” said Leslie Bland, director of marketing of Banyan Street Capital, the owner of Peachtree Center. “This artful experience blends perfectly with Peachtree Center’s goal of bringing public art to Downtown. The PRISM: Winter Lights installation will act as cheerful, seasonal welcome mat for visitors of the property and pedestrians along Peachtree Street!”
An opening night event will take place at Woodruff Park on December 4th from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. featuring live performances. Food and drinks will be available for purchase. All are invited to explore the free and public exhibit day or night during Woodruff Park and Peachtree Center’s respective hours of operation from December 4, 2021 through January 31, 2022.
