Light art festival to add colour and buzz to Marina Bay

Marina Bay will be aglow with colour and light – as more than 30 light art installations take pride of place.

A host of interactive fringe events and activities, such as artist talks, night carnivals and photography workshops, will add more buzz.

They’re part of i Light Marina Bay 2012, Asia’s first and only sustainable light art festival.

The event, organised by the Urban Redevelopment Authority, will open nightly between 7.30 pm and 11.00 pm from March 9 to April 1.

On weekends, student volunteers from Temasek Polytechnic will help to conduct guided tours to shed light on the creative process of the artists and their works.

Visitors can explore the art installations on the Light Walk Trail, a curated route covering all 31 art installations.

The public can interact with the artists at free talks on the first weekend of the festival.

Fringe activities will be held during the festival.

Each weekend, there will be a Night Carnival with food and drinks, as well as eco-friendly merchandise.

Photography enthusiasts who capture the enchanting nightscape of Marina Bay and the light artworks can submit their photographs for a chance to win prizes.

In line with the goal of promoting sustainability, visitors can share their innovative energy-efficient tips through the festival website and stand to win prizes.

An industry-focused i Light Symposium will bring together leading light practitioners.
