Jackson Hole Public Art announces the return of its annual GlowNights celebration, running this December 18th through January with an exhibit of light-based installations in Teton Village and the town of Jackson. GlowNights artworks energize community public spaces in an effort to bring people together during the darkest nights of the year. With isolation as a leading mental health indicator, JH Public Art and GlowNights partners hope that this year’s installations inspire wonder as well as safe and accessible gathering. Dates and times for site-specific events will be announced in mid-December. 2021/22 GlowNights is sponsored by Teton Village Association, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, First Western Trust, JH Travel & Tourism Board:4JH, Outpost, and Wyoming Arts Council; Hughes Productions will provide lighting components and support. Light Falls, a large-scale, light and sound installation by Brazilian artist VIGAS, will anchor GlowNights in Teton Village. More than 12 feet tall, Light Falls invokes the beauty and power of nature in its most potent form: the waterfall. The artwork consists of a series of illuminated tubes that cascade downward and intertwine on the ground, creating the effect of water hitting rocks and is accompanied by ambient nature sounds to complete the waterfall illusion. The artist Leandro Mendes—aka VIGAS—is a Brazilian multimedia artist who works with large-scale projections, light installations, 360-degree projections, and live performance. Light Falls was most recently on view at Canal Convergence in Scottsdale, Arizona. Three locations in the town of Jackson will sponsor and host GlowNights installations: Center for the Arts, Greenspace on the Block, and Teton County Library. Doug Vogel and Evan Hopping will collaborate on Aurora Borealis – a custom lighting installation in the aspen trees at the Center for the Arts. Liz Forelle is creating a new work, titled Parcels – an illuminated, floating topographical map of the Tetons for Greenspace on the Block. CLB Architects will construct an abstracted geyser in sculptural form, titled Plume, to reside on the grounds of Teton County Library.
