Halfway through the Dark: a discussion with 8 Nights, 8 Windows artists Christian Meade and Nathaniel Wyrick at the West End Museum

Friday, December 11, 2015

7:00 to 8:00 p.m.


Local artists Christian Meade and Nathaniel Wyrick will discuss the thought process that led them to the Halfway through the Dark concept and their process creating the installation. They will engage attendees, answering questions about the work, its symbolism related to Hanukkah, and the themes of darkness and light in the winter season.

“Winter holidays, especially Hanukkah, are celebrations of light and warmth with many events that gather family and friends together,” said Meade. “The work Nathaniel and I have created for 8 Nights, 8 Windows integrates these ideas of family, togetherness and embracing the miracle of light in the midst of darkness.”
