Dilworth Park will become home to the Red Bull Art of Can art exhibition in early October, an event whose launch will be marked by an interactive light installation on Oct. 2.
That Friday night, a light installation by Klip Collective will cover City Hall's west façade. The project promotes citizen interaction by allowing the public to control what's shown on the building. The Red Bull Art of Can exhibit kicks off, free to the public, that weekend from 7 p.m. until 10 p.m. and runs through Thursday, Oct. 8.
Red Bull Art of Can will showcase 30 art pieces from local and national artists covering a variety of arts categories including "physical art" using an actual Red Bull Can, "digital displayed art," which can be displayed on a screen, and "interactive installation art," which utilizes physical and digital art displays. Aside from the art that will be displayed, judges are choosing the top three entries from each category, with prizes ranging from a $500 cash grant to a $2,500 prize for winning entries.
Klip Collective is a local visual art company that has created detailed light projection displays for Temple University's Temple Made campaign and MSNBC's "Lean Forward," among a number of other companies and events.
