Stuttgart(Germany)/Zurich(Switzerland)/USA, September 12th 2017. Starting September 16th 2017 the Wiedmann Bible will be part of the “Light Art Grand Tour USA”. For the next 3 years the world-renowned Light Artist Gerry Hofstetter will travel all 50 states of the U.S. and put different landmarks into spotlight that have played an important role in the country’s history.
Pennsylvania’s Washington Crossing at Washington Crossing is the first of 50 monuments that will be illuminated with the Wiedmann Bible’s images and many other artworks. The Swiss Light Artist Gerry Hofstetter and his daughter Céline Hofstetter present the tour throughout the U.S. in partnership with the premier event company Hayes Group. In a 2-hour performance the Light Artist and his team will transform buildings, landscapes, etc. into art sculptures by projecting up to 20 images onto the landmarks. Each monument that is being featured in this one of a kind show has played an important role during the foundation of the United States of America and still does in fostering friendships with other countries, including Switzerland.
