Re-imagine the season of light at Georgetown GLOW, the region’s only curated exhibition of outdoor public light art installations. Now in its fourth year, Georgetown GLOW is even bigger and brighter, with nine exhibitions from 15 local, regional and international artists lit from 5 – 10 pm nightly, December 8 – January 7, throughout Georgetown’s commercial district. Set against the historic backdrop of DC’s oldest neighborhood, it’s a whole new way to shine. Georgetown GLOW is presented by the Georgetown Business Improvement District (BID) and funded in part by the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, Public Art Building Communities Grant Program, which receives support from the National Endowment for the Arts, as well as the generous support of event sponsors.
