As curator and producer of all the installations of the Night Gallery, HMG introduced the city to the drama and excitement of Architectural Media. One installation projected ten 50-foot by 50-foot video images onto The National Museum of American History and combined them to make one gigantic American flag by the Washington Monument. The result was a heroic, powerful image the center of our nations capital projected on the National Mall. Other installations illuminated the National Museum of the American Indian, Newseum, sections of M Street in Georgetown, and the Holocaust museum, where images of Holocaust survivors, some of whom were present to watch the larger-than-life images movingly presented before their eyes.
In this first ever event, HMG retained permission from the District of Columbia and related Federal agencies to project images on national monuments and buildings throughout city. We were trusted by all to mount the installations while maintaining the upmost respect for the original art and the district’s buildings and monuments.
