Lighting the Franklin

From 2010-2016, I worked with The Franklin Hotel in downtown Chapel Hill, NC to create holiday art installations in their four street-facing windows. The project began as a way to utilize their display windows to spread holiday cheer in downtown Chapel Hill, and have since become a yearly community tradition for the hotel. Here are a few photos from the years that I worked with The Franklin to design and fabricate installations in 2010, 2011, 2014, and 2016.
