For eight evenings, Griffis Sculpture Park will be illuminated with colorful and theatrical lighting for “NIGHT LIGHTS at Griffis Sculpture Park.” On Weds, Oct. 23 thru Sat. Oct. 26th and Weds Oct. 30 thru Sat. Nov. 2. The trails will open from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. on weekends. Guests will be able to walk a portion of the Mill Valley Rd site of the sculpture park, where the trails and sculptures will interact with creative lighting – creating a truly unique experience..
Admission will be $10 adults, $5 children 12 to 7, and free for six and under. Night Lights can be canceled due to rain. Updates will be provided at www.griffispark.org and Facebook account.
The lights will be installed by SitlerHQ and Volt Vision, Inc, the same crew responsible for very successful NIGHT LIGHTS at The Gardens (Buffalo & Erie County Botanical Gardens) and NIGHT LIGHTS at The Heron (Sherman, NY). The show aims to give visitors a surrealistic experience of walking through woods and fields at night and viewing the sculptures bathed in lights.
Over 250 sculptures reside at the 300 acre Griffis Sculpture Park, making it the United States largest sculpture park. The park is owned and operated by the Ashford Hollow Foundation, which also owns the Essex Arts Center in Buffalo, NY. The mission of the Ashford Hollow Foundation is to promote the visual and performing arts as well as construct a dynamic relationship between the arts and education in Western New York to better its young people and the greater community.
