The holiday season in DC is one of our favorite times of the year. And while the White House Christmas Tree shines a little dimmer in our hearts, we are happy to report that 4 years in, Georgetown Glow, their own variation of Lyon’s Fete des Lumieres, is as strong and thought provoking (and yes, instagrammable) as ever.

As of tomorrow evening, Georgetown Glow is back and still growing:  this year, the install is up 5-10pm nightly, for a FULL MONTH (vs ten days last year), and goes through January 7th 2018. The installations and artists this year range from Poland’s Joachim Sługocki and Katarzyna Malejka horizontal interference, to the interactive, walkable landscape of meandering pathways of light by Jen Lewin and Lebanon’s empathy driven “My Light Is Your Light” by Alaa Minawi. Washington D.C. is represented well too, with Ted Bazydlo & Brandon Newcomer’s Light Cloud, as well as Robin Bell’s structural remix. And while some of the installations are obvious and prominently displayed, but some require a little searching, so we recommend checking out the handy map here.

BONUS for the season: Save December 14th for GLOW All Night from 5 to 9 p.m. outside The Old Georgetown Theater and the Dean & DeLuca Plaza featuring performances from The Greatest Hoax, Yahuali, Troy Everett and Flash Frequency. For more details on that and other cool GLOW related events – here.
