Kaleidoscope Project – 14th Street Bridge Operator’s Tower

Kaleidoscope Project

© 2010

Commissioned by the DC Creates! Public Art Program, DC Commission on the Arts in Humanities in collaboration with the District Department of Transportation

The DC Commission of the Arts and Humanities’ (DCCAH) Kaleidoscope Project at the 14th Street Bridge Operator’s Tower just received its final touches. Artist Mikyoung Kim installed LED lighting to enhance the experience of the work at night. The lights will remain on from 4pm to Midnight each night. The kaleidoscopic sculptures are constructed out of dichroic and reflective acrylic that create refracted light compositions at each window. While installing the lights, the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) helped with traffic control. The refurbishing of the Operator’s Tower is part of DDOT’s ongoing 14th Street Bridge Project.
