Light Art Grand Tour USA

Hofstetter, in partnership with the Hayes Group, embarked on a three-year Light Art Grand Tour across the U.S. in September 2017, visiting each state in the order in which they joined the Union. Over the next three years, the team will visit one site in each state, making Mount Vernon the only stop in Virginia. Through this project, Hofstetter hopes to explore history and friendship and inspire Americans through light.

The Light Art show involves images projected briefly upon the surface of the mansion.  The projections pose no risk to the historic site.
