Our 10 Favorite Photos from enLIGHTen This Past Weekend

Photo x @mikehinbuffalo

If you weren’t aware of the awesomeness that occurred this past weekend at the Richardson Olmsted Campus, then hopefully these pictures will give you some sort of enlightenment.

This jaw dropping event, enLIGHTen, took place at one of Buffalo’s most iconic buildings and a National Historic Landmark: The Buffalo State Asylum for the insane, which was built back in the 1800s by Henry Hobson Richardson. Why the grand light show? It was recently redeveloped after years of being untouched. This historic architectural beauty is being transformed into a cultural service for the city, beginning with Hotel Henry Urban Resort Conference Center and the Lipsey Buffalo Architecture Center.

Your eyes will even light up after looking at these photos… think we’re kidding? See for yourself.

Wow, we are truly speechless. Thank you, Buffalo! The love that you have shown for our work has made the past year – filled with a whole lot of blood, sweat and tears, all worth it. “It takes a team to dream” and we would like to thank BAV for providing the incredible projection and light show to accompany our visuals. #teamprojex stand up and take a bow – @_keith_harrington_ @erinhabes @jeremymaxwell.etc @seth_daniel_hughes @delanopatterson @hollyquin @robimbs @sarsparillsa @indiasey & @tmcnamara1993.
