Bright Nights - Manhattan Bridge Video Commission


Participating artists: Burak Arikan, Motomichi Nakamura, Marius Watz, Lee Wells
Curator: Christina Vassallo

An evening of projections on the Manhattan Bridge Anchorage in DUMBO, Brooklyn presented by Random Number through the NYCDOT Urban Art Program.

Bright Nights is a curated program of digital artwork that celebrates the projected image, draws attention to the iconic architecture of the Manhattan Bridge, and electrifies the arts friendly DUMBO neighborhood. The program will be projected onto the Manhattan Bridge Anchorage, to coincide with the 100th birthday of the bridge and the 10th annual Walk21 conference.

Four Brooklyn-based artists created new works that interpret the unique physical, spatial, and historical components of the bridge. The artists were chosen for their ability to energize a public space, in celebration of the major thoroughfare’s 100th birthday. Please join us in this exciting event!
