illuminating vashon

Geissinger Barn, Vashon

A cool new Site-Specific project, called Barn Illumination, is happening Saturdays in April on Vashon Island. From dusk until 10 p.m., artist Ann C. Durant will illuminate Geissinger barn with high wattage lights from the interior, creating unique experiences that explore relationships between structure and landscape, the past and the present. This 4Culture sponsored project brings together arts, heritage and preservation in new way that highlights the value of historic resources and encourages discussion about the relevance of “place” in daily life.

The Barn Illumination Project is a traveling installation and designed as a tool for community dialog. To learn more or to invite the project to your town visit the project facebook page at
