This past weekend was the 2nd annual Newburgh Illuminated Festival. The lightbulb is now the new symbol of Newburgh and this is the second year artists have designed their own personal lightbulb to be displayed city-wide. It was amazing to see these temporary art installations everywhere, especially vinyl printed signs on the old Resnick Mattress Warehouse! On Sunday all of the lighbulbs were gathered at the corner of Liberty Street and Broadway for the finale and auction.
The city had visitors and tourists from all over the world, and many others who were visiting Newburgh for the very first time. We can’t wait to see how the festival and the Lightbulb Project grow and expand for next year!
