At The Portland Open Space Sequence Light Installation

The Portland Open Space Sequence joins the Portland Winter Light Festival this week with a dazzling display of light, color and artistry. Free to the public, the parks and fountains in the Sequence will be lit with lanterns and festooned with illuminated fabrics and graphics. This beautiful installation is thanks to the team at PLACE. They dreamed up the idea, led the design, curation and installation, working late at night in very cold temps.  We couldn’t have done it without you guys!
