DANVILLE, Va. (WFXR) — Top landscape lighting designers from across North America and the Caribbean are set to gather in Danville this week to re-envision the nightscape of Averett University’s main campus during Sterling Lighting’s annual summit.
According to the university, at 9 p.m. on Thursday, July 21, guests and community members will be able to see temporary lighting displays showcasing the brilliant possibilities for future lighting enhancements on campus.
However, school officials say this landscape lighting display will only be available for one night to the general public, so if you want to attend this event, you need to register online.
“This outdoor event will be one of the largest lighting design challenges to take place in the country,” Averett University stated. “Design teams will rely upon their creativity, expertise and cutting-edge products to illuminate key areas on Averett’s Main Campus, such as Jordan Commons, the Student Center patio and the iconic Main Hall building.”
The design teams will reportedly be led by award-winning lighting designers and mentors, facing the challenge of showing the campus in a new light through their designs while also dealing with an accelerated time frame and a limited number of lighting fixtures.
During Thursday night’s display, the university says guests will be able to see the lighting spectacles, as well as hear the teams present the challenges, solutions, and specific Sterling Lighting products used to achieve their final designs.
