The festival was conceived by Ira Levy, a New York City-based lighting designer and Liam O’Braion, a producer of large-scale entertainment events. Both have been long time admirers of the lighting festivals that take place annually around the world in cities such as Berlin; London; Lyon, France; Montreal, Canada; and Sydney. “The festival is a celebration of light, in all of its extraordinary incarnations ranging from static, interactive, and projection in addition to the ways artists, dancers, designers, musicians, and technologists collaborate with light to make their performances a delight for the senses,” O’Braion said in a prepared statement.
