Last night I headed out to the Autumn Festival of Lights that was taking place in Pershing Square, DTLA. Unsure what to expect, I was pleasantly surprised!
There is a lot of talent in LA, and this was a great way to showcase some artists that have done amazing things using light. There was something for everyone!
There was a nice variety of people at the festival, however the most interesting part would have to be the (roughly) 20 Amish people that walked by at one point. They didn’t stop to admire the art, rather they were just headed somewhere.
There was a band playing live music, which sounded really great!
I have been to Pershing Square during the day, but seeing it come alive at night was a nice experience.
This bird cage dress/mannequin was very interesting to see in person:
One of the more interesting things I saw last night, would have to be this artist that was live painting from behind the sheet of plastic.
Here is what it looked like from behind:
I could go on and on about the different art pieces on display, but you can definitely see more photos by clicking here.
Instead I will focus on a piece that really grabbed my attention, and it was quite beautiful. This “film” was projected against the wall and was accompanied by the perfect musical score. I spent a long time trying to photograph it and be able to capture the essence. Ultimately, I failed. It was one of those art pieces where you definitely had to be there.
I just hope they found each other in the end…
