« September 15, 2017, Friday - When I Nod My Head You Hit It With The Hammer at The Southern Theater (thru Sept 23) | Main | September 14, 2017, Thursday - Murder Mystery at Old Spaghetti Factory »

September 15, 2017, Friday - Illuminate the Lock: Aaron Dysart, Surface (2 nights)

Time: 8:00pm-10:30pm 

Location: Upper St. Anthony Falls Lock And Dam, 1 Portland Avenue

Illuminate the Lock: Aaron Dysart, Surface

Surface takes years of handwritten data recorded by Army Corps of Engineers staff as the basis for a light show. Daily pool heights will translate into shifting colors projected on atmospheric effects created in the lock chamber. The spectacle will display the 52 year operating history of this iconic Minneapolis space through near daily observations by the people who tended it.

Illuminate the Lock is a 2-part series of artist interventions that use the 49 foot tall chamber of Upper St. Anthony Falls Lock and Dam as a screen for artistic projections.

Presented by Northern, Mississippi Park Connection, the Mississippi National River and Recreation Area, and as part of Here & There by The Soap Factory with support from St. Anthony Falls Heritage Board and the US Army Corps of Engineers.
