Live all year long

Today, GLOW also surprises, connects and inspires renewal throughout the year. Light artworks that reflect the legacy of GLOW will remain visible in the city beyond the original date of the light art festival. Scattered throughout the city centre you’ll find unique light artworks which tell a story about (the history) of the location. Accessible for everyone to enjoy!

Philips Museum
Since September 2018, the light artwork 'Private Light' by Titia Ex is visible on the chimnee of the Philips Museum. The artwork was first shown at GLOW2016. Between the skyscrapers, the light bulb captures everyones attention. 

Central Station Eindhoven
SPACE, created by Daan Roosegaarde, is a 90 meters long wall artwork which creates a new dimension of light and space at Eindhoven Central Station by using 3D lenses. It was revealed in Oktober 2017.  SPACE shows the impact of light on our planet and creates a place of wonder. Supported by ProRail and the Municipality of Eindhoven, the work of art is created in collaboration with Heijmans and Arcadis.
