Another iconic York building is set to be transformed with a vibrant light installation this February.
York BID have announced the return of Colour & Light for 2024 from Wednesday 7 to Sunday 25 February.
The magical visual arts project was first launched last year, when York Minster was lit up with a dazzling, moving art show.
Now the 3D projections will bring another landmark building to life – as Colour & Light will illuminate York Art Gallery.
Carl Alsop, the BID’s operations manager, said: “It’s a great privilege to host a free event in the city during a quieter time of the year.
“It was incredible to see the cultural benefit to York throughout our 2023 event; highlights included over 45,000 viewers and some local restaurants even running out of food due to popularity!
“We’re looking forward to building on that success with this year’s display, which is bound to create a positive impact for residents and visitors alike.”
York BID (Business Improvement District) is working with York Museums Trust for the 2024 project.
The trust’s head of visitor experience Richard Saward said: “This event will kick off a fantastic season at York Art Gallery.
“The Aesthetica Art Prize 2024 exhibition will open on 15th February and ‘National Treasure’ Claude Monet’s painting The Waterlily-Pond will be on display in York from 10th May to celebrate the 200th birthday of the National Gallery.”
Colour & Light is a non-ticketed, free event – and a spectacle for all the family to enjoy. The projection will play every 10 minutes, between 6-9pm daily.
