In the peak of winter, when the days are short and everybody in the Netherlands misses more light, the streets of Amsterdam become richly illuminated by Amsterdam Light Festival. 30 light artworks by Dutch and international artists are installed along a canal, creating a magical atmosphere. Some of the installations are truly fascinating. Almost 2-month long event starts at the end of November and lasts till 20th January next year. It’s been organized already 7 times. Last year’s theme was the quote from scientist Marshall McLuhan – “The Medium is the Message”.
Let us take you for a tour of the art of Amsterdam Light Festival!
