As we prepare to fall back to Pacific Standard Time, Lumière Vancouver illuminates the early dark evenings downtown and West End neighbourhoods in spectacular fashion starting tonight, and throughout the weekend.
Back for its sixth year, the annual, family-friendly event is inspired by light and artistic expression. Lumière Vancouver 2019 includes more than 25 interactive art installations that are sure to enchant visitors to the expanded four sites: English Bay, Jim Deva Plaza, Lot 19 (Hornby at Hastings Street), and šx????n?q Xwtl’e7én? Square (North Plaza at the Vancouver Art Gallery).
Helping create the brilliant installations are lighting partners: MK Illumination, Tangible Interaction, and Hfour.
Each of Lumière Vancouver’s four site’s interactive art installations honour a different theme:
• Nature at English Bay
• Pride at Jim Deva Plaza
• Local at Lot 19
• Interactive at šx????n?q Xwtl’e7én? Square
Free Vancouver Trolley shuttles will be available to transport viewers between each site.
Public Disco will be hosting a free outdoor dance party each night of Lumière Vancouver at Jim Deva Plaza in the Davie Village. Dance and light-inspired performances will further mesmerize audiences at all four sites.
“Lumière has been an incredible, ever-growing success since its launch in 2014,” says Stephen Regan, Executive Director of the West End BIA. “Huge thanks to our event and lighting partners for making Lumière one of the first great family-friendly events of Vancouver’s fall/winter calendar. We look forward to hosting thousands of viewers throughout the three days.”
Lumière Vancouver 2019 runs November 1 – 3, 2019 from 5:00 to 10:00 pm nightly. (Select installations will remain up for the remainder of the fall season for spectators to enjoy nightly.) For more information, visit lumiereyvr.com.
