First ever ‘Glow’ project offers interactive art experience after dark

DEARBORN – The Dearborn “Glow” project will light up an entire city corner from approximately 7 to 10 p.m. Feb. 3, when more than 2,000 glow sticks arranged in a pavilion design provide an interactive, but temporary, visual experience for visitors.

The site for the project is on the corner of Michigan Avenue and Brady adjacent to the Dearborn Historical Museum, a co-host for the project along with the Dearborn Community Fund.

The idea for the project, described as a “celestial field,” originated with resident Paolo Mastrogiacomo, a University of Michigan graduate student in architecture, and his colleague Ariya Kelly. In addition to providing a unique experience, they see the potential for this type of project to provide the community with an opportunity to stop, play and become engaged while calling attention to the area and what it has to offer.

The event is open to the public at no charge. In the event of heavy snow accumulation of more than 2 1/2 feet, the project will be rescheduled for Feb. 17, at the same location.
