DESCRIPTION

Knoxville Colorline is a site-specific light installation by San Antonio-based artist Bill FitzGibbons. The work consists of programmed LED lights placed along the KMA's north facade that transforms the building into a shifting canvas of colored light every night through the end of 2010.

Knoxville Colorline is presented in conjunction with Filament, an exhibition at the University of Tennessee’s Ewing Gallery of Art and Architecture that features the sculpture of FitzGibbons and mixed media work by fellow artist Creighton Michael.
