Jackson Hole Public Art and community partners will celebrate Phantom Seasons, one of the public art pieces created for this winter's GLOW Nights, with two events this month. Phantom Seasons is a light installation by local artists Bradley Smith, Noah Waldron, and Doug Vogel on the Town Enclosure at the Center for the Arts’ lawn. On Friday February 21st at 6:30pm, JHPA welcomes local scientist, writer, and filmmaker Trevor Bloom for a unique nature and science talk inside of Phantom Seasons on the snow covered lawn outside of the Center. Trevor will share a newly created 10-15 minute talk based on his extensive research and experience with the seasons and phenomena of the Greater Yellowstone ecosystem. There will be music before and after the talk, so you are encouraged to bring a warm beverage and hang out to chat with Trevor about all things nature and science. This event is family friendly but will discuss themes of environmental change. Phantom Seasons was created for this winter’s GLOW Nights, a month-long “must see” exhibit of original art installations that use colored and white light as a medium to celebrate the unique phenomena found in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem (GYE). This piece was inspired by two phenomena: the vibrant colors from each season and our most limited resource of all – time. Using LEDs to light the walls and snow of Town Enclosure, Phantom Seasons erupts in color at variable intervals inspired by Old Faithful and other awe-inspiring geysers in the GYE. This nightly ritual is triggered by an unreliable timer that, like nature, forces us to look at the impermanence of natural wonders and our own perspectives of time. GLOW Nights is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts, with additional grant funding provided by the Wyoming Arts Council and Community Foundation of Jackson Hole. Major funding for GLOW Nights is provided by the Teton Village Association and Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. Business sponsors include First Interstate Bank, Jackson Hole Land Trust, Center for the Arts, and Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce. Hughes Productions will provide the lighting components for the installations.
