Georgetown’s annual winter light show GLOW returns Dec. 6 through Jan. 5, with 11 commissioned works throughout Georgetown illuminated each night from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Three dozen Georgetown businesses will offer promotions and special events during the monthlong light show, and several local tour companies will offer more than 30 GLOW-inspired walking tours, some with historic, photography or food themes.
Other artists include Choi + Shine, from Boston; Eunsook Lee, from Korea; Sui Park, from New York City; Hou De Sousa, also from New York City; Geoffrey Hicks, from Tulsa; Jeff Zischke, from Scottsdale, Arizona, and Miracle Wonderland Carnival Co., from New Orleans, and Venividimultiplex in the Netherlands.
The Georgetown Business Improvement District started GLOW in 2014.
“We’re very excited to see how it’s grown to become a winter tradition in our region, and an emerging light art experience in the U.S.” said Nancy Miyahira, marketing director for the Georgetown BID.
“GLOW helps in establishing Washington, D.C., as a creative place for artists, making public art accessible to all.”
The artists are paid through a Public Art Building Communities Grant the Georgetown BID gets from the D.C. commission on the Arts & Humanities.
