DENVER — This is the last weekend to view the 10 artists from around the world featured in the Denver Theatre District's “Night Lights Denver” installation on the Daniels and Fisher clock tower.

The artists video mapping and projection pieces will be replaced with new pieces at the end of September.

The 10 artists currently featured are a part of Denver Digerati's Supernova Outdoor Digital Animation Festival.

Denver Digerati is an organization dedicated to bringing art to downtown Denver.

“The downtown right now has, what I would say is, maybe 25% of its normal life, particularly at night. So, it’s really a nice experience at this time in this moment,” said Ivar Zeile, the founder of Denver Digerati.

Zeile said the projections run Tuesday through Sunday from 7:15 p.m. to 11 p.m..

Even though the current pieces will no longer be featured after September, Night Light's Denver is a permanent installation and the Denver Theatre District will announce a new set of art pieces coming in October soon.

Night Lights Denver was launched by the Denver Theatre District and Downtown Denver Partnership late last year.
