Toronto Light Festival
January 27, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - March 12, 2017 @ 10:00 pm
The Toronto Light Festival, the city’s first-ever light art festival, illuminates the Distillery Historic District from January 27 to March 12. Visitors will be taken on a new visual journey and cerebral adventure, designed to entertain and inspire. The festival will transform the picturesque historic neighbourhood into one of the largest open-air galleries in North America, lighting up the long winter nights with distinctive works from local and international light artists.
WHAT IS LIGHT ART?
Art becomes light art when light forms the fundamental means or medium of expression. This relatively new art form includes a wide variety of ways light can be influenced. Light art pieces usually emit or manipulate light, colours and shadows in creative ways.
During the cold, dark days of winter, City residents will be drawn out of their traditional indoor habitats to experience Toronto in a way they never have before.
