The fourth annual Jerusalem Festival of Light is running through June 14th in the Old City of Jerusalem. This year the festival has grown to include ten international artists displaying the best artistic work in the field alongside dozens of performances, tours, local artists, and sites.
Visitors (250,000 last year) perceive the artworks in the Festival walking through trails in the Old City’s alleys, squares and its surrounding. Special attention has to be put on the sensibilities surrounding the Holy Old City.
The Festival of Light in the Old City provides, through the use of light, a dramatic and artistic dimension to the Old City’s nights. From the illumination of architecture to light statues, the festival is a public and family oriented celebration.
