MAG Installation and City lighting improvements make Rochester shine.
2015 was the International Year of Light. In 2014, New York Photonics was encouraging IYOL events and celebrations for the coming year. Regionally, a lot of good things came out of that effort. Some of them are touched upon here.
But some things took longer to brew, like this installation by artist Jim Sanborn at Rochester’s Memorial Art Gallery (MAG). MAG Director, Jonathan Binstock and New York Photonics applied for a Bloomberg Arts grant to support the project in 2015, but it wasn’t awarded. That didn’t stop Binstock, though.
Kudos to Jonathan and the MAG for pulling it off at last!
