Organized by 1708 Gallery, InLight 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 VMFA. 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.
For the past seven years, 1708’s InLight has featured 190 local, national, and international artists and artist collectives across some of Richmond’s most unique neighborhoods and evocative sites — from Broad Street to historic Tredegar to Monroe Park — engaging more than 30,000 visitors.
The museum will remain open late for the exhibition, which takes place from 7 pm until midnight on Friday and from 7-10 pm on Saturday.
