public art project Constellation at night


Melissa McGill’s land art project, Constellation, just started its second season on view. The large-scale installation forms a "constellation" of "stars" (hand-blown glass orbs made by Niche) above the ruins, aiming to connect Earth and heavens, past and present and myth and fact.

The project continues to light every night at sunset and offers a schedule of sunset boat toursSee the installation up close, tour the Bannerman Castle ruins, and watch the project light up while on the Hudson River aboard the Estuary Steward. Tours run through October 2016 and depart from the Beacon, New York waterfront. Individual and group reservations are now available online. More information about the project, schedules and tickets, including artist-led tours and programs, can be found on the Constellation website.
