I took this photo in April 2004 at the Outdoor Neon and Light Exhibition in the UW Stock Pavilion. I wish I could tell you who created this lovely work, but I was too entranced to take notes (and, of course, it was dark). I still flash back on memories of the show. You can see more examples at Lisa Koch's website here.
It strikes me as ironic that in the very year our city proudly opened a shiny new Madison Museum of Contemporary Art in the Overture Center (known in some quarters as the condo magnet) the biennial light show was not held due to lack of funds. If this is not contemporary art, what is? If you have a few spare bucks to help bring it back, I'm sure the UW Glass Lab would love to hear from you.
