Large-Scale Halloween Video Art Projection

At the Helen Day Art Center front lawn
5 School Street

The Helen Day Art Center is pleased to announce as part of our Relentless Eye cellphone photography exhibition programming, a Halloween video projection by the New York City artist Sean Capone.

In this installation, a video projector illuminates the entire front of the newly refurbished Helen Day Art Center/Stowe Public Library with evolving constellations of patterns, arabesques, and floral motifs, evocative of autumns' passing and the beckoning of winter in Stowe. The projection will be the first of its kind in Vermont and will begin with a preview at 6 PM aimed at the younger crowd as they make their way out to trick-or-treat in Stowe. At 7 PM Mr. Capone begins projecting a site-specific installation onto the facade of the building transforming architecture into video painting.

The Helen Day Art Center and Stowe Free Library are housed in an 1863 Greek Revival building set just off of main street in the historic village of Stowe, Vermont. Formerly the Stowe High School it was saved from the wrecking ball by local preservationists and has served as a culture center for Stowe for over 25 years.
