The light side

We are all familiar with reflection, but how about re-reflection? Will May has compressed and stored reflected light from Paris, France and carried it back to Charlottesville with plans to reconstitute it in water during PVCC’s Let There Be Light event. The annual evening of light-based artwork and amazement is held in reverence of the winter solstice. The spectacle is revealed through illusion as a Ford Mercury converts into a luminescent boat, surreal messages illuminate the trees, and objects appear crafted from pure light. Bring a flashlight and don’t be afraid of the dark.

Friday 12/14 Free, 6pm. PVCC Grounds, 501 College Dr. 977-6918.
