CLOUD to appear in the forecast for Brighton Block and Primavera Development Group
This year Nuit Blanche Edmonton is set to take place on September 29th, 2018 and will have a piece called "CLOUD" by Caitlind r.c. Brown & Wayne Garrett take the evening by the storm. CLOUD is a magnificent piece of interactive art composed of 6000 light bulbs in the shape of a cloud to be suspended from a crane situated on the empty lot just west of Primavera's flagship development project "Brighton Block". What is going to be dubbed as Primavera Plaza will not only have the brightly lit sculpture on display, there will also be a stage featuring live improv courtesy of Rapid Fire Theatre, warming stations and some of Edmonton's favorite food trucks standing by to keep art revelers well fed. A huge thank you is in order for the long list of proud sponsors helping to bring this piece here—they are as follows (in no particular order):
L.A.P.C. Drywall LTD.
