Grand Park’s Winter Glow
Time Out says
Touch, climb and explore interactive, illuminated installations at Grand Park’s nighttime experience.
The Downtown park is taking advantage of winter’s ever-shortening daylight with a light-up activation that brings a bit of warmth to the area. For most of December, Winter Glow will complement the park’s traditional holiday decor with hands-on displays of all sizes.
For the second year, the art, projection and light display will feature works from local artists and organizations. This time around, Winter Glow will expand to the renovated Music Center Plaza across the street, as well.
The 2018 edition included sizable standout “A Spark of Light” by Aphidoidea, which allows guests to walk inside and change the piece’s colors through touch sensors; “The Net (Neon Network)” by H+ Creative, a pair of neon-hued light tunnels draped over the stairs; the ability to reprogram the light and water shows at the Arthur J. Will Memorial Fountain; and two contributions from Two Bit Circus, the suspended balls of “The Wave Pendulum” and the wall-mounted LEDs of “Infinity Mirror.”
While didn’t find last year’s Winter Glow to bring that same sense of awe found at L.A.’s more ambitious lights displays, it was hard to argue with the cost: free. It’s not as much of a destination compared to competing ticketed displays, but if you’re in the area in the evening, it’s worth a stroll through the park.
Grand Park’s Winter Glow runs from December 6 to 25, from sunset to 10pm each night. Admission is free and easily accessible via the Civic Center/Grand Park Station on Metro’s Red and Purple Lines. Check out our video below from last year’s debut.
