A temporary public art installation, titled âShrumen Lumen,â lights up downtown Danville in the evening.
Created by FoldHaus, an art collective based in the San Francisco Bay Area and directed by Joerg Student and Jesse Silver, the large mushroom-shaped piece of art features an umbrella-shaped mechanism that changes the shape of the hat of mushrooms. Originally created for Burning Man at Night, the artwork is a rainbow of LED colors.
The two 14-foot installations, both of the same name, are located at Town Green, 400 Front Street, and the Village Theater Art Gallery, 233 Front Street. Public art is an extension of the village art gallery. The âAltered & Reimaginedâ theater exhibition features works of art created from recycled and found objects.
They will be on display until Labor Day.
