the project

Our team consists of public health and artist grads from Kansas State University, we understand the connection that art plays in community well-being. From music, literature, film, etc. art provides solace and connection even as we remain apart. While we work to reopen the economy, public gatherings aren’t likely to be the same for some time due to public health concerns, reducing the opportunities we have to experience art in real life. Yet, still, we crave this connection as it serves to support community wellbeing.

Funding through this campaign will support the creation of projection-artworks to be viewed on select grain silos across the state. Embedded within these projections will be a showcase of artwork created in response to the COVID-19 crisis and communicating safe public health practices. The method of viewing projection art offers the advantage of continuing the public health practice of social distancing. Like drive-in movies of the past, families can view the artwork from a distance or in the safety of their own car, yet still feel connected to others through this unique, shared experience.

why we're doing it

Why a projection installation as a response to the COVID-19 crisis and Kansas Healthy Communities Call?

Light has healing benefits and has already played a significant role in demonstrating community support throughout the coronavirus crisis. The #lightitblue campaign turned significant architectural buildings blue across the world to celebrate our front line workers battling this crisis. In Wuhan, China at midnight when the citywide quarantine was lifted the city celebrated with lights and projections illuminating the entire downtown skyline. Now Kansas will join those efforts. This project will provide an uplifting message and symbolize how we are all connected. Festivals of light were created to combat loneliness and bring communities together during the darkest times of the year. This project will allow us to continue this tradition and uplift Kansas residents as we face this crisis together.
