Phillip K. Smith III is recognized internationally for his large-scale installations that live at the intersection of architecture and light. This site-specific commission packs a lot of impact without interference to the Museum’s façade, illuminating the museum’s Washington Street entrance every night with a brilliant sequence of changing colors. In order to maintain the original appearance of the 1925 facade, this long-term installation is only visible at night.


Community Days are presented by Horizon Foundation for New Jersey.
