Drift by Stephanie Imbeau (Berlin/New York) is one of 23 large-scale light art installations that will be on display during Light City Baltimore 2017.

Attracting more than 400,000 visitors in 2016,  Light City is returning to Baltimore, Friday, March 31, through Saturday, April 8.  It is billed as “the nation’s first large-scale light, music and innovation festival.”

For nine consecutive nights, the free public festival will transform Baltimore into an interactive playground of light art installations, activities for the whole family, concerts and performances.

The festival is open from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. on weeknights and until midnight on the weekends. Central to Light City is the BGE Light Art Walk, a 1.5-mile trail along Baltimore’s Inner Harbor featuring illuminated artworks, performances, music, locally sourced food concepts, a children’s area and maker tents.

Of the 23 light installations on display, 21 are brand new to Light City with ten brand new commissions making their debut at Light City.

Also new to the 2017 festival are a line-up of performances and concerts, nightly themed kick-offs called “nightly moments” (including fireworks on the final night), a themed food and beverage program, light installations in eight Baltimore City neighborhoods, and a program to illuminate downtown buildings and attractions called “Brilliant Baltimore.”

In addition to the nighttime activities, a series of innovation conference ranging on topics from healthcare to sustainability will take place Monday, April 3, through Saturday, April 8 at the IMET Columbus Center. This Labs@LightCity program brings together innovators, thought leaders and inspired citizens from diverse backgrounds to explore concepts for sparking social change.
