Publicolor, Color is Energy
Imagine a non-profit’s gala fundraiser where the well-dressed and a population of dedicated black youth mingle with designers and artists guiding team paintings!
Notable guests included Mayor Bloomberg, his companion Diana Taylor and Planning Commissioner Amanda Burden
This living picture is reenacted every year for the annual Publicolor Stir Splatter + Roll party, silent auction and dinner to raise money to “engage disaffected teenage students in their education by involving them in adding color to all the public spaces in their schools”.
Light Projects has been contributing to this worthy and inspiring non-profit event for the last 10 years by designing the lighting for the gala and leading a team painting process.
Please consider joining us next year, read up on the programs and results of the Publicolor organization.
Benefit chandeliers with construction string lights and hula hoops transform the gym into an intimate space for dining!
Special thanks Light Projects’ Kristi Kent for creating our painting design, Joseph Legros for coordinating and painting and Eric Chenault for lighting design support. Also to Mark Barton, friend of Light Projects, for on-site lighting focus.
