“Der Liebe Gott” Exhibition
Creating Light Art
The Frappant, an underground art gallery and artists residence in Hamburg Altona, Germany was the site of a widely acclaimed avant-garde exhibition “Der liebe Gott” (The Dear God). Among the pieces attracting the most attention during the 10-day event was light artist Boris Frentzel-Beyme’s haunting and transcendental work “Deus luminogaster,” which draws on the output of carefully placed Freedom Pars from CHAUVET DJ to make its powerful impression.
There is a plethora of unique experiences to enjoy in Manhattan. Now a singularly exceptional one has been added to the list: the chance to enter the world of an aquarium fish. This opportunity takes place at Seaglass Carousel, a domed spaceship-like structure located at the southern tip of Manhattan in Battery Park. Unlike typical carousels, which feature ponies, unicorns and the like, Seaglass takes visitors on a ride inside giant tropical fish with shimmering colorful bodies made all the more vibrant by the intense output of 50 COLORado 2-Quad Zoom IP LED wash fixtures from CHAUVET Professional that were used in a design by Technical Artistry of New York.
Miami’s Art Basel
One of the nation’s premier art fairs, this year’s Art Basel in Miami Beach drew a record 75,000 visitors, who viewed exhibits from over 250 leading galleries representing 30 countries around the globe. None shone brighter, however, than the Alexander Mijares Gallery, which featured a massive 36-foot wide by 26-foot high surrealistic mural on its front wall, bathed in a stunning rainbow of colors by CHAUVET Professional COLORado 1-Quad IP wash lights. CHAUVET Professional fixtures were also in high profile inside the Mijares Gallery, where award-winning Ovation E-190WW LED ellipsoidals focused warm white light on the most important works of art in the 30-piece display, giving them weight and articulation.
Metropolitan Museum of Art
It is one of the most popular exhibits in New York’s most visited museum. Built in 15 BC, the ancient Egyptian Temple of Dendur at the Metropolitan Museum of Art draws visitors from across the globe. It is the place where dignitaries seem to linger longest when they tour the museum and where a visitor is liable to get lost in thought. No wonder! As one critic noted, it is easy to imagine being transported back in time when admiring the massive sandstone structure. Frost Productions, along with lighting designers Walter Chavez and Jason (“Blends”) Ayala, celebrated the transformative power of this exhibit recently with help from the color mixing power of CHAUVET Professional fixtures.
