Luzinterruptus: "Literature vs. Traffic"

Courtesy photo
This October, the Institute for the Humanities is shutting down Liberty Street near U-M campus where thousands of discarded books, wll be reused by turning them into an illuminated pathway for “Literature vs. Traffic,” a large-scale art installation by Spanish undercover art collective Luzinterruptus. Ann Arbor joins Toronto, New York, and Melbourne, as we feature--for one night only--the brilliance of 10,000 books and thousands of LED lights. What was just a street will become a beautiful installation to bring the power of art, education, the written word, and free thought to the entire Ann Arbor community by essentially “paving” Liberty St. with thousands of glowing books. Event begins at 5 p.m.-11 p.m.; 530 South State Street, Ann Arbor; Free.
