Thursday Lights

Target

Thursday Lights was an interactive city-scale installation designed to capture the spirit and magic of Midwest summer evenings. Visitors to the sculpture garden at the world-renowned Walker Art Center interacted with glowing jars of electric “fireflies,” controlling a city-wide light show on the massive panoramic LED display at Target headquarters over a mile away.

Every Thursday the Walker Art Center garden became alive with visitors in the balmy summer evenings

Custom-built installations show the fireflies escaping across town to the building in the distance.
