The Firefly Grove
Through April 2013 at the
John Brown House Museum, 52 Power Street, Providence, RI
Performances during the opening were presented by the Providence Ballet Theatre’s Youth Ballet Company.
The Firefly Grove is a wonderful interactive light and sound art work that mimics the fireflies’ illumination patterns. This project addresses the commonly heard statement in RI of “where have all the fireflies gone.” The public art work which reminds people of the magical presence of the firefly and its loss due to light pollution can be seen through April 2013 in the John Brown House Museum’s courtyard.
