Georgetown GLOW DC

Georgetown GLOW is a Light Art Exhibition in Georgetown. Free and open to the public.

Experience the sparkle of the season at Georgetown GLOW, the region's only curated exhibition of outdoor public light art installations. Set against the historic backdrop of DC's oldest neighborhood, it's a whole new way to shine.

The 2017 Georgetown GLOW invites visitors to re-imagine the season of light through outdoor public art.  This 4th edition of GLOW runs from Friday, December 8 through Sunday, January 7, with works lit from 5 – 10 p.m. nightly.  Georgetown GLOW is presented by the Georgetown Business Improvement District.

The installations for the 2017 edition of Georgetown GLOW exude a vivid brightness both in aesthetics and content. From chromatic rings to interactive landscapes, the works are truly beautiful whilst being contemplative. As with previous iterations of GLOW, we ask the viewer to interact, connect, and play with the artwork in thoughtful ways. This year, we also ask viewers to think about the meaning behind the works and how they are able to temporarily transform our surroundings. We do hope that GLOW brings a renewed light to all during the holiday season.

Thank you to the DC Commission on the Arts & Humanities for awarding the Georgetown BID with a Public Art Building Communities Grant for Georgetown GLOW 2017.
