SNOWMASS LUMINESCENCE WRAPS SUNDAY

The Snowmass Luminescence light festival comes to a close Sunday after three months of interactive light installations throughout Snowmass Village.

Installations include a series of light tunnels and “Submergence,” an immersive space filled with dangling lights by the artist collective Squidsoup; “Prismatica,” a collection of colorful light prisms stationed in Base Village and the Snowmass Mall; and light displays on the Anderson Ranch Arts Center campus.
