Light City Baltimore held its inaugural event in 2016. It featured art installations that incorporated light in many forms, and was located in the Inner Harbor area and selected Baltimore neighborhoods. Waverly Main Street was chosen to host an installation for the upcoming 2017 event.

PROTEAN by Resident Artist Jose Andres Rosero-Curet
On View: March 31-April 8, 2017
Events: April 6-8, 6-10pm
“Protean” is an evolving LED installation experience housed within a 20ft shipping container, designed to echo the winding crossroads and corridors that make up Waverly and connect its people together. The structure will feature an audio reactive light show driven by a sound scape created by Waverly musician Amy Reid. Patterns of light and color will change based on the soundtrack as well as direct interaction from viewers as they move throughout the structure.
LED “Throwie” Workshop
April 6 at 6-7pm
32nd & Brentwood
Neighborhood Lights Waverly attendees will be instructed in the creation of LED “Throwies.” Based on the original concept by the Graffiti Research Lab, this project will allow the community to collaboratively decorate the exterior of the “PROTEAN” structure. At the completion of each night these can be taken home as mementos from the shared experience.
