Riverhead’s Reflextions: Art in the Park, an immersive “light art” installation, is back for its fifth year at Grangebel Park starting Saturday, July 23.
The installation is a walkable gallery of lighted art displays, including sculptures with LED lights, reflective materials and a blacklight mural. Most of the art will be on display during daylight hours and admission to the outdoor gallery is free.
But Reflextions will really come to life during the illumination nights.
“We look forward to lighting up the park and the public coming out to enjoy local artisan works,” Reflextions co-creator Bryan Deluca said in a press release.
“I’m excited to have people come to the park to see how much we’ve added each year, and I love that we can highlight local musicians and artists in a beautiful environment,” added event producer Diane Tucci. “If you haven’t seen it yet, you must come. If you have come before, we welcome you back to enjoy an illuminated stroll through the park and plenty of selfie opportunities.”
