New Alley Art Experience

General   •   July 29, 2021

This week we’re sharing another of our new Summer GLOW pieces, for the alley by Emily Fussner. On display through September 26 at Oak Alley (3125 M St NW), the installation (shown below) consists of transparent-colored acrylic panels with laser-cut words that are suspended, canopy-style, across the top of the alley to form a site-specific poem. The poem is an invitation to ground our bodies within the alley as a space of reflection; to look closer, to notice light, to alter our perspective and imagine other possibilities. Dynamic, colored shadows – formed from diffused light that evokes a stained-glass effect – alter your experience with the poem, which is read through its shadows and only fully legible during certain times of the day, depending on the position of the sun. At night, the installation is lit and remains still. Follow Emily on Instagram to learn more about the best viewing times, and visit our GLOW website for more on our free public light art experience, including artist bios, a map, and walking tour information.
