Lumen is a visual art installation that was commissioned by Light City Baltimore in 2016. The work merges performance and interactive community space to allow users to draw with light across the Baltimore landscape. The project invited local muralists, street artists, and the public to contribute to a large-scale community drawing using fluorescent ink upon a nearly 100’ acrylic mural wall located in West Shore Park. Adults, children, artists, and non-artists were welcomed and encouraged to contribute and engage with the work resulting in a community light work that reflected the discourses, ideas, and expressions of the city.
