Winter Light Festival Japan

Call to Light Artists


You are here

The Council is seeking artists who work with light.   

Please download this call to artists here.    

Deadline is October 22 for initial submission.  

Spurred on by Mayor Joseph A. Curtatone’s call for more art and light in the city, the Somerville Arts Council seeks site-specific outdoor lighting displays to be exhibited during the winter months of late 2018/early 2019 throughout Somerville. This new light project is inspired by the long tradition of Somerville families decorating and illuminating their homes for the holidays. The selected new works will be incorporated into our annual Illuminations Light Festival/Tour and continue to create visual spectacles of light into early 2019.
