An handful of dazzling light and projection installations will be on display every night in Macon until April 7, transforming the downtown district of the central GA city into a temporary public art gallery.
Entitled SHINE, artists Darya Fard & Craig Coleman have teamed up with the art organization Dashboard for this immersive experience, who are renowned for transforming public spaces into luminous art escapades across the South and the country.
The experience transforms the Bibb Theatre and Newberry Building into temporary works of art, with both of the chosen buildings being vacant storefronts, highlighting the potential and possibilities that await for these historic spaces.
As for the art, the two artists provide a diverse art experience, with Fard focusing universal connection by using trippy visuals of metaphorical, symmetrical, and symbolic mythical creatures. Coleman on the other hand, creates work around the mediums of photography, installation, and digital media.
