The Lightbulb Project- First Glimpse

Fifty-two artists created fifty-two 'light bulbs", each being four-foot tall (one actually measure in at six feet) outlines of light bulbs, each being uniquely designed. These light bulbs have been sponsored by various people or businesses and are appearing throughout the city. In no particular order, aside from the order I come across them, these are the locations where light bulbs are to be found:

Two light bulbs, sponsored and displayed at The Wherehouse ( 119 Liberty Street)

 "My love of Newburgh, History, Rabbits and most importantly my very talented Mother (who collaborated with me on this project) are my inspirations for my LightBulb Project. I’m excited to be participating with artists so passionate about Newburgh and the arts.

Artist: Amanda J. Light
"My artwork is a map, marking epiphanies and periods of feeling throughout my experience. Art is also my chosen method of communication, a visual common ground for others on the same journey to relate to and perhaps find answers, or questions, in their own lives."

Light bulbs to be found:
