Imaginations will be ignited as audiences move through an immersive world of light and sound on Gateway Island during September.

Murray Arts presents Limelight: Art. Science. Light – a free outdoor art experience where digital artists and local creatives transform the darkness to enlighten our world.

Executive Director of Murray Arts, Alyce Fisher says the outdoor art experience is like no other in the region.

“We have assembled a collection of interactive artworks with truly engaging messages, and a crew of eager volunteers to make this a lively and fun evening on the Island!” Alyce said.

Visitors will step inside the immersive 360° projection environment of the Pygmy Perch 360°- a once common native fish, with only three populations remaining in NSW.

They will journey along with the fish and have senses simulated from every direction, then follow the path to the Flaming Phoenix sculptural installation and the Wild Wetlands projections project.

“Murray Arts is one of Inspiring Australia’s Regional Science Hubs so we have timed the Limelight event to coincide with Endangered Species Month,” Alyce said.

The outdoor art experience is launched on Thursday 20 September at Gateway Village Ampitheatre, when the sun goes down. Guides will be on hand to show visitors through the space anytime from 6:30 – 8:30 pm.
