Little Italy's Art & Light Festival | Night Lights
Little Italy is creating a bright spot during the dark November evenings. Night Lights is a unique Art and Light Festival designed by local artists Dems and Doll. The first of its kind, this free nighttime event will offer guests the chance to interact with multiple uniquely lit art installations and other activities.
Designed by Dems & Doll, the talented artists behind many of the city’s most intriguing new murals as well as Spirited Away and Glowfair, Night Lights is geared to all ages. It will run from 7 to 11 p.m. on Saturday, November 25 and Sunday, November 26 and will incorporate a diverse range of activities. The interactive programming includes large-format games, glow face painting, a DJ, a fire poi performer, glow hula hoopers, photo booths and more.
“We were looking for a way to brighten up November,” says Lori Mellor, executive director of the Preston Street BIA, the sponsor of Night Lights. “Dems & Doll came up with this exciting concept which they’ve described as ‘Where the Wild Things Are’ meets ‘Neon’ and it’s going to be truly spectacular.”
This whimsical event will also pay homage to Little Italy’s proud heritage by including objects that have been invented by Italians. Through a series of clues, attendees will be encouraged to “guess the invention”.
“As it is an outdoor event, we are encouraging people to dress for the weather and come join in on the fun in Little Italy. It’s the perfect activity to take in before heading to dinner, drinks or a show at one of Preston Street’s many wonderful restaurants, bars and clubs.”
