The Feverous Transgressions exhibit, by Mark Baker, Chalet Comellas and Clinton Sleeper allowed visitors to dance along to a moving light exhibit with music. 1708 Gallery's 10th Annual InLight Richmond included performances, sculpture, video, and interactive projects that illuminated pathways, walls, sidewalks, green spaces, in the city's arts and culture district along Broad Street, Friday 11/3/2017. This year's InLight 2017 followed the inspiration of the 1901 Electric Carnival that enlivened Broad Street with a replica of the Eiffel Tower and tens of thousands of lights. InLight was created in 2008 on the occasion of 1708 Gallery's 30th birthday.

InLight Richmond, the roving exhibition of light-based art and performances, will be held in Chimborazo Park in Church Hill this year on Friday, Nov. 15 and Saturday, Nov.16.

The free, illuminated art event is hosted by 1708 Gallery and features  "performances, sculpture, video, and interactive projects that illuminate pathways, walls, sidewalks, green spaces, and kicks off with the Community Lantern Parade," according to the press release.

Last year, InLight was held at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. It has also been held in the downtown Arts District, at the Canal and other locations around town.

The event is free and open to the public. Go to 1708gallery.org for more information.
