Here Comes the Sun

Artfest Here Comes the Sun Public Art Installation

A Multimedia Public Art Installation on the Lawn of The Umbrella at 40 Stow Street 

The installation, designed by Ellen McHale and Gail Burr and inspired by public art installations they have experienced including Michael Pendry’s “Les Columbes”, is being created in collaboration with community members who are invited to contribute “dedication doves”. Participants are encouraged to inscribe their origami doves with messages of hope, wishes for the future, and dedications to the heroes around us. The installation will be interactive and lit by Wyatt Burns, creating engaging experiences for both daytime and nighttime viewing. The installation will be available for viewing April 24-May 16.

“Here Comes the Sun” will be available for viewing beginning on April 24 and will grow over the course of The Umbrella Artfest, culminating with the final community additions the weekend of May 15-16.
