Electric Windows 2010
On Saturday July 31st 2010, OPEN SPACE gallery and Burlock Home presented Electric Windows 2010. 30 artists converged in Beacon, NY to create live artwork and have their work installed on the exterior of a 19th century factory building. Electric Windows draws its name from the former electric blanket factory at the foot of Mount Beacon that will act as the backdrop for the event.
In addition to the live art and installation the event included 2 additional Installation sites, 9 live music acts, food Vendors, dancing by M*POWER ELITE TEAM, and live screen printing by Buxtonia.
This project was possible with the generous support and contributions of the following organizations, friends and sponsors.
On the evening of October 1st (2011) at the intersection of Main Street and East Main in Beacon NY we shut down the street and had party. When the sun set 24 animated shorts were projected onto the facade of the Electric Windows Building. Each animation was inspired by one of the pieces of art on the building. DJ Bobby Collins rocked a custom mix during the animations. After the main event Bobby C Sound TV DJ’d his famous Audio/Visual DJ Sets and continued the projections on the building, everyone danced in the streets…
