Just as light is transformational, so is Pittsburgh. In tribute, Pittsburgh 250 Festival of Lights the largest lighting event of its kind in the United States asks you to explore many of our cultural and community assets at new times and in new ways to celebrate our regions past, present and future.
Under the direction of Lucette de Rugy of Artlumiere, international designers transform building facades into stunning works of art. French artist Corentine Buron will showcase her work at Agnes R. Katz Plaza and the Omni William Penn Hotel in Downtown Pittsburgh. Friedrich Forster and Sabine Weissinger (aka CASA MAGICA) will light the Cathedral of Learning, the second tallest educational building in the world.
In addition, numerous Houses of Worship will be lighted in subtle ways, under the direction of Adam Koe Leong, to showcase architectural detail and stained glass best seen at night. And the artwork of children and their mentors will transform the David L. Lawrence Convention Center into a virtual gallery under the direction of Clear Story Creative.
