Light Up the Darkness

Two local students working with Hamilton Wings will be exhibiting an art installation at Elgin iFest entitled “Light Up the Darkness” (Promoting “Optimistic Thinking”.)

This 9 foot by 6 foot mural will be covered in drab-looking Post-It notes that passers-by can take/remove from the mural to gradually reveal something beautiful underneath. Each Post-It note has a positive and uplifting quote on the reserve side.

The students will be capturing video of guests’ reactions when they remove each slip of paper from the mural.

Elgin iFest is an annual festival to celebrate the many cultures in Elgin and around the Fox Valley Region.
