Scenes from the Breck WAVE Art Festival

November 6, 2017

One-hour past sundown on Friday night, the illuminated public art pieces at the Blue River Plaza in Breckenridge begin to take over the darkened sky. The visitors take notice with their phone cameras. The WAVE art festival assembled artists from around the globe to make the town's public spaces into their canvas. Hosted by Breckenridge Creative Arts, the late-evening families interacted with the light and sounds at the "Micro" installation featuring 200 silicon-coated orbs suspended in midair, watched in awe under 10,000 feet of translucent rope at the "Polygunum 2.0" scene, and walked between other installations within downtown area. The free contemporary public art event will be on display until Sunday night.
