One thought on “Light Up the Lake is this Weekend”
My family and I just attended Light Up the Lake this evening, and I felt compelled to comment upon how disappointed we all were with the event. There was no creativity or aesthetic sensibility to the light installations, which were apparently put together in the laziest and least evocative configuration imaginable. We spent more time in traffic than we did at the event, and we saw everything there was to see there twice. There were, simply, far too many people there. There was no time or opportunity to take in or reflect upon any of the light installations, and no real reason to stop, reflect, or comment on anything. It all felt very cynical and pointless.
My suggestion to the event organizers is to charge at least a marginal entrance fee; even a minor surcharge (and the resulting barrier to entry) will ensure a higher quality event overall, both in the form of a greater budget for design, and in cutting down on the teeming swaths of people.
