Nutcraker Lights on the Boston Public Library (with umbrella)
Nutcracker Suite Music and Light Show Projected onto the Boston Public Library (with umbrella)

The City of Boston contracted with luminARTZ and artist Anthony Bastic (who produced the Vivid Sydney Light Walk and Lights of Christmas projections in Australia) to project a 3-D light show onto the Boston Public Library in Copley Square, with music. Despite the rain, I watched while the Twelve Days of Christmas and the Nutcracker Suite filled Copley Square with music while visions of light danced on the library facade on Saturday, the first of four performance nights.  I only had my iPhone but took a few decent shots, including the ones posted here.

More on this holiday show, titled “The Mayor’s Celebration of Lights,” in this Boston Globe article. According to the Globe:

Boston’s light show comes amid a United Nations proclamation declaring 2015 the International Year of Light. The UN is emphasizing the critical role light plays in people’s daily lives and the impact it has on the cutting edge of modern day science.
