Colorado artist Jen Lewin will install two interactive light and sound sculptures — "The Pool" and "The Laser Chandelier" — starting at 5 p.m. tomorrow, Oct. 3, at the University of Central Arkansas's Alumni Circle and Simon Park. The installations are part of the city's ArtsFest this week.

"The Pool," which is going up at the UCA campus, is made up of lighted circular platforms that respond to movement. Live DJs, light-up LED hula hooping performances by Re-Creation Studios and Southern Lights, and two dance performances by the CORE Performance Company will accompany the installation.

"The Laser Chandelier," which is going in Simon Park, features beams of light that make music when interrupted. Installation events run through 10 p.m ., and the sculptures will remain in place through Saturday, Oct. 5. 

Lewin will talk about the work at 1:40 p.m. tomorrow at McCastlain Hall 143 at UCA. 
 
The Baum Gallery of Fine Art in collaboration with UCA’s Artists in Residence Program, UCA’s Student Government Association, The Conway Chamber of Commerce, and the Conway Advertising and Promotion Commission are sponsors.
