The DC region’s premier outdoor public light art installation returns for its fourth year at The Yards with two must-see, worldwide traveling light installations: The Pool, by New York-based Jen Lewin Studio and Angels of Freedom, by Israel-based OGE Group. The Pool invites you to hop, skip, and jump across 106 interactive circular pads of light, roughly 3-feet in diameter and 2.5 inches tall. As multiple visitors play in The Pool, your movements will come together to create a giant canvas of shifting and fading colors in mesmerizing patterns. Since 2012, The Pool has traveled to more than 40 major installations worldwide and clocked millions of user steps. Angels of Freedom, a beautiful and social sculptural installation, aims to reveal the inner beauties of everyone by visually turning visitors into real-life angels. You are invited to pose with five giant, neon-colored wings and white halos as a reminder that everybody counts and deserves love. After experiencing the wonders of Light Yards, extend your evening at more than a dozen great places to eat and drink at The Yards to officially toast the 2018 holiday season. This is a free event open to the public. 6:00 to 10:00 p.m. every night. For more information, please click here.
