Lights make their greatest impact during the shortest days of the year, when religious holiday traditions are celebrated with menorahs, Christmas trees and festive light displays in homes and communities across the country. This season, Travesias de Luz showcases Georgetown with a vibrant light display, a highlight of the District's inaugural Fete des Lumieres through Dec. 20.
"We plan ahead carefully," Ms. Alvarez said. "We love to see the reactions of people when they realize they can play with the installations. It's an interesting social situation as one by one they begin experimenting with the displays. Wherever we go, people show big respect for us and our work, and they tell us that we inspire them to create beauty."
"With our first project [in Georgetown], we wanted to light the streets in order to change the environment," Luisa Alvarez, the group's creative director, told The Washington Times on Wednesday, a few hours after arriving from Spain.
