Dazzling Lightscape at 40 Stow Thanks Community Supporters, Essential Workers
Concord, MA – In the run-up to its May 29 STAND BY ME virtual celebration of the arts, The Umbrella Arts Center sought a creative way to remain connected with the community and show its gratitude for the support it has received during the Covid-19 crisis.
Created through the lighting wizardry of A2D Productions, a brilliant and colorful message of thanks is being projected onto the façade of The Umbrella's renovated building at 40 Stow Street each evening between 8PM to 10PM. While urging social distancing, The Umbrella invited its newsletter and social media followers to drive by, take a picture, video, or (mask-on) selfie, and "share with someone you’d like to send a thank you to during this time!"
The display was designed and set up over two days by Wyatt Burns, photographed by Ron Mann. It will be projected through the end of The Umbrella's event, which will be livestreamed for free at 7:30PM.
