LuminoCITY Lights Up Detroit

By RENEE SUMMERS, A&E Editor

If you have plans to be in downtown Detroit any evening this week, make sure you check out LuminoCITY before the display comes to an end on Feb. 18.  

LuminoCITY is a collection of massive interactive art sculptures, created with aluminum and fabric and illuminated from within.  The large 3-D displays, sponsored by Quicken Loans, Bedrock and DTE Energy, are able to be viewed at five downtown locations.  

John Marcicky, of Bedrock, said the idea behind the project was to intrigue folks and get them to discover all the new developments in Detroit’s downtown.  

“You’re going to come downtown to check out a couple of the sculptures,” Marcicky said, “and you might find your new favorite bar or favorite restaurant.”  

There are 16 bold and colorful structures in all.  They are strategically placed near shops, restaurants, cultural areas and busy public spaces.  You can find the displays in the city’s central business district, at Capitol Park, East and West Grand Circus Park, Hart Plaza, Hudson’s Site and along Woodward Avenue.  Each is within a short walking distance of the other.  

The display was set up to coincide with the North American International Auto Show early in January, and will run through this Saturday.  You can find more information and a pdf map to download at www.luminocitydet.com.
