Erwin Redl »Seeing Spartanburg in a New Light«
City of Spartanburg, South Carolina, US 
Nine temporary public art projects
Opening ceremony: October 4, 2016

The City of Spartanburg has been selected as one of four cities to participate as part of the Bloomberg Philanthropies Public Art Challenge, a new program to support temporary public art projects that celebrate creativity, enhance urban identity, encourage public-private partnerships, and drive economic development.

Spartanburg’s winning project, »Seeing Spartanburg in a New Light«, brings nine temporary art installations to city-owned public spaces in ten neighborhoods throughout the city. Internationally renowned light and digital media artist Erwin Redl and curator Mark Sloan, Director of the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art at the College of Charleston, were collaborating with the City’s police department and selected neighborhood associations to design and develop LED light installations that would transform open spaces to create safer, more vibrant neighborhoods.
