The atmospheric lantern park that has enchanted audiences for many years comes to life once again through a collaboration between Aalto University and the Theatre Academy of the University of the Arts Helsinki. The installation is curated by the environmental and community artist Kaisa Salmi. Included are new, increasingly colourful lanterns made by art and design students, to add to ones created in previous years by students and professionals.
Lantern Park is a light extravaganza that grows larger with each passing year. It embraces the wintry park as night falls, enhancing and extending the atmosphere created by the park’s own lighting. This year the installation involves nearly 150 lanterns reaching from the National Opera all the way to the Hakasalmi Villa. The lanterns provide their light all through the night.
Performance time: Daily from 5 pm to 10 pm
