Festival collab alert!

We are delighted to announce a dazzling partnership with the Waterfront Blues Festival this July 4 – 7! As you groove to the soulful tunes of Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals or vibe with Greensky Bluegrass, you’ll also experience the magic of three spectacular light installations from the Portland Winter Light Festival. Get ready for a fusion of mesmerizing lights and incredible music that promises to make this festival truly unforgettable.

Nautilus Deep sea is now featured at Pride plaza on SW 12th and Harvey Milk way!

The Nautilus Sculpture by Sparks Designs is intended to draw locals and tourists to the vibrant West end of downtown Portland. This unveiling represents our commitment to enriching the community with light-based public art and shared experiences. Be sure to visit Nautilus at Pride Plaza.

In this episode of the mini docu-series, explore the world of Sparks Designs and their mesmerizing installation, ‘Nautilus Deep Sea.’ This 12-foot sculpture casts prismatic patterns of shadow and light on a grand scale, evoking awe for the mysterious Nautilus and its deep-sea habitat. Discover how this femme metal collective uses art to highlight the intricate connections between nature and the cosmos while raising awareness about the conservation of this endangered marine species.
