A team of artists and lighting experts placed luminous art in the drab and long-ignored flood-control chutes in North
Adams, Mass. One estimate said that 3,000 people attended its opening night. I think it might have been more. Opinions of
it varied. Personally, I liked it a lot. (All photos by Mark E. Rondeau)
Light flows through a tube and into the exhibit.
The lights turn green. This part of the exhibition took place along River Street. Many people looked at it from the bridge
over the river perpendicular to River Street on Holden Street.
The other main attraction of the show was this light display near MASS MoCA — once the headquarters of the Sprague
Electric Co. — that reflected off the river. This display was about a quarter mile west of the main display, and was
best visible from the south side of the river, just west of the car wash.
