Castleberry Hill opens up to Flux Night 2013 

October 5, 2013 - The annual public art event Flux Night returned to the Castleberry Hill Arts District on Oct. 5. Of Flux's 20 projects, six were curated by renowned critic and curator Helena Reckitt. The annual event draws tens of thousands of attendees and the neighborhood's galleries, bars, and restaurants open their doors to the public for additional independently presented projects. The streets and empty spaces of the neighborhood were filled with projections, dance, performances, music, sound and light installations, and parades. Projections lit the space between buildings in an alley, a horse-drawn piano rolled by the crowds, DJs spun records in different areas, cannons blew smoke, audiences controlled light installations, and many other projects continued late into the night.
