Swinging Bells Art Installation at Beacon Park – Jan. 5 – 14
6:00 pm – 10:00 pm
“Swinging Bells” is a free interactive light installation created by Amigo and Amigo, a Sydney Austrialia-based artist studio. Inspired by the concept that bells have been rung throughout history as a symbol of celebration and to bring people together, they created five larger-than-life swinging bells throughout Beacon Park.
The public is invited to activate the bells to hear their unique sounds and watch the colorful lights. This is a can’t-miss installation in Detroit that will be on display through January 14th.
