Propelled by LED lights and lenses, WATERLICHT was installed in the Public Plaza of Columbia's Lenfest Center for the Arts on October 22, 23, and 24, 2019.
WATERLICHT is a site-specific, large-scale light installation by acclaimed Dutch artist and innovator Daan Roosegaarde. Translated as "water light," this immersive, public art event illuminates the power and poetry of water, while raising awareness of rising global sea levels.
“Daan Roosegaarde is one of the most exciting artists of the twenty-first century—passionate about the environment, art, design, innovation, ideas, and beauty. WATERLICHT combines them all.”
—Carol Becker, Dean, School of the Arts
