For the fourteenth time, Eindhoven has welcomed the public to the light art festival GLOW. Some 770,000 visitors attended this year.
This great turnout of visitors has satisfied the organizers of GLOW Eindhoven. They are looking back on this 14th edition with a good feeling and labelling this edition as a success. In comparison, around 750,000 visitors came to GLOW during the previous edition.
This year the festival showed several works on the theme of ‘Living Colors’. Sunflowers for Van Gogh is rated as a public favourite. The artist Hugo Vrijdag created it in collaboration with ASML, Van Gogh Brabant, Qinhuai light festival in Nanjing and Van Gogh Museum.
Furthermore, this year for the first time non-artists also made light artworks. It all developed in GLOWlabs sessions. These allowed collaborations between artists, companies, technicians and residents on innovative light artworks based on a certain theme.
The organization is already looking ahead to the 15th-anniversary edition of GLOW in 2020. The theme of this special edition will be ‘Urban Skin’. It will take place next year from 7 to 14 November.
