Swiss Artist to Transform Mill City Museum into Light Art Sculpture on October 6
Swiss Light Artist Gerry Hofstetter has chosen Mill City Museum as Minnesota’s signature venue for his Light Art Grand Tour USA. Hofstetter says he works around the globe “transforming monuments and landscapes into light art sculptures for a short moment in time, as a way to highlight their history and importance to the world.” The art is also meant to showcase the friendship between the United States and his home country, Switzerland.
For his “Grand Tour USA,” Hofstetter is visiting all 50 states selecting one monument, landscape or venue in every state to bathe in light for one night. A mix of images will be chosen by the artist and will feature historical images of the mill.
Mill City Museum and the connecting Washburn-Crosby grain elevator will be lit on Saturday, Oct. 6 from 8 to 9 p.m.
The Light Art will be shown on the river side of the museum, and the public is encouraged to watch from the Minneapolis riverfront, Stone Arch Bridge and St. Anthony Main.
