On Saturday evening, the Freer Gallery of Art’s façade becomes a canvas for a specially commissioned artwork by Tony Award-winning artists 59 Productions. Prepare to be dazzled as the building is transformed into a living sculpture, telling the story of the museum’s founding and extraordinary collection.
A Perfect Harmony is the latest work from 59 Productions, the team behind the video design of the opening ceremony of the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. 59 Productions has a decade of experience making theatrical work for some of the world’s greatest venues—including the National Theatre, Royal Opera House, Metropolitan Opera, and Salzburg Festival. More recently, the company has created spectacular public artworks and projection mapping for some of the world’s most iconic buildings, including the Sydney Opera House, Edinburgh Castle, Hampton Court Palace, and United Nations headquarters.
