Organized by 1708 GalleryInLight Richmond is a public exhibition of light-based art and performances.  Each year, InLight invites artists to respond to a particular section of our diverse city, and this year the setting for this free event is the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.  Here, visitors will see video projections illuminating the building facades, light-based sculpture that bridges the walkways, performances on the front lawn, interactive projects where visitors help create that artwork, and a Community Lantern Parade that winds its way through the entire grounds.
