Lighting up Penticton in February


The plan to project lighted images on to buildings in downtown Penticton during the gloomy month of February became a reality this week

The projection art project kicked off Monday evening and will be held through March 1 in the 200 block of Main Street.

"If you just look at the weather outside, this is the perfect time for us to show some bright colours," said curator Tarik Sayeed.

The project will feature art from different local artists including Laura Morrow and Levi George.

Some of the artists may be on hand for the light show, which Sayeed says is the first of its kind in the Okanagan.

The art project, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. each night, is part of the ongoing One World Penticton, a celebration of multiculturalism in the city.

Sayeed's presentation on the projected art show was well-received by the city council at last Monday's meeting.

"They were very enthusiastic," he said.
