If you were looking forward to the public light and art installations so highly anticipated during Georgetown’s annual GLOW holiday celebrations you’ll have to wait until Spring/Summer 2021.

The event, organized by the Georgetown Business Improvement District (BID) and traditionally held as a month-long seasonal celebration every December, felt compelled to shift this year in an effort to allow more visitors to safely and comfortably enjoy the exhibition. Alternative holiday programming is rumored to be announced soon.

“We recognize the power of community and art now more than ever – as well as the importance of working with more DC-based artists to showcase the great work they are doing for our city – and look forward to bringing back this celebration of light for an extended period of time, when it’s safer and more comfortable for all to visit and enjoy,” said Nancy Miyahira, Vice President and Marketing Director for the Georgetown BID.

GLOW will return for its 7th iteration as an extended two-part series in Spring and Summer 2021, featuring a total of eight artworks by local DC artists.

Five artworks will be exhibited April 2 – June 27, on display both day and night. Summer GLOW will feature three artworks in Georgetown’s public alleys, July 2 – September 26. Lights will still be an important feature, but these works will be designed to be experienced both day and night.
