New public art installation for Trades District parking garage

A celebration for a new public art installation in Bloomington is happening this Friday from 9 to 10 p.m. in the south alley of the Fourth Street Garage.

According to a news release from the city of Bloomington, the artwork, PRISMA, is an interactive and immersive light installation that invites visitors to re-activate “invisible” urban spaces with renewed excitement.

The three “prisms” that make up the piece act as a foundation to create an open-air tunnel with a free-flowing, animated lighted experience. 

Artist Esteban Garcia Bravo created PRISMA for the 2023 Exhibit Columbus architecture biennial in Columbus, Indiana.

“This second version of the PRISMA installation comes after a year of being presented at Exhibit Columbus in 2023,” said artist Garcia Bravo. “In this new installation for the City of Bloomington, we added an element of interactivity that was originally intended for this piece by creating a light tunnel that triggers different light sequences as participants walk through it. I would like to thank my collaborators for making this dream possible!”

The celebration will feature music by local DJ Ian Sundstrom and live performances organized by The Back Door.

The artwork is installed in the Trades District Garage, near the intersection of Rogers and 10th Streets.
