GLOW Eindhoven - Route 2017
From 11 until 18 November 2017, Eindhoven will be all about Light Art Festival GLOW. This year for the 12th time.
An enormous exhibition in public space of 29 national and international light artists. The light artworks are connected by a walking route of approximately 6 kilometres which runs through the city centre. The innovative, unique works of art that are created by young talents will be exhibited at the industrial NRE site at the main route. The year's theme is called 'The Source', based on the source of light. All artists were instructed to create a project based ont his theme which already results in a surprising variety of light artworks.
The GLOW route is appr. 6 kilometres and runs through the city centre of Eindhoven. The start of the route is at Brandstore Eindhoven/ Tourist Information Office at Stationsplein. From there, the route continues to the Beursgebouw, 18 Septemberplein, passing Nieuwe Emmasingel to Lichtplein, Philips Stadium and the Mosque. Following back to the city centre via Wilhelminaplein, De Bergen and Stadhuisplein. The GLOW Art Special takes place at Van Abbemuseum. The route then continues along the river Dommel, via the canal to the NRE site, partially following Parklaan, passing Villa de Laak, Effenaar and the newly built Student Hotel, taking us back to our starting point at Brandstore Eindhoven.
The new, interactive map based on GPS will be available in September. For the third time, GLOW will be ended with a 5 kilometres GLOW Run along the route. A fun run for all ages.
