The Illuminated Waterfront

Through the bitter cold of Vermont winters, people gather in the warmth of community. In contrast to the freezing darkness, light becomes more special. The Burlington-based Illumination Collective artist group brings video projection mapping, ambient lighting, and other lighting techniques and illusions to ECHO Aquarium and the Burlington Waterfront in a beautiful, safe, and family friendly interactive experience that dazzles the senses.

Exhibiting artists comprising the Illumination Collective include Jane Adams, Jake Blend, Kristian Brevik, Jody Brown, Alexander Costantino, Leisa Fearing, Ken Howell, Clay Mohr, George Philbrick, Terry Sehr, and Alex Toulan. Many thanks to John Boquet, project manager, and Richard Stock, graphic designer.

Inside ECHO, find music to complement the installation. Ambient guitarist and self-proclaimed mystic Tom Pearo creates uniquely beautiful, strange and often magical recordings that take the listener on an inner journey. His debut album, Headspace, is a sonic vehicle for that trip, and features six tracks that will leave you in a state of peaceful stillness.

Events may hit capacity, so please arrive early! Per city ordinance, after 11pm, you need to be 21+ to enter ECHO. After 9pm, if you’re under 21, there is no re-entry.
