From January 14 through Febuary 13, the Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts will black out the windows of their home on Sheldon Boulevard. Responding to Michigan's winter darkness, Beacons: An Exhibition of Luminous Art will showcase the light that artists can bring to this often bleak time of year. The exhibition will feature 33 artists and a variety of artwork, including film and video projections, light installations, sound installations, images and objects.

Beacons is a group exhibition featuring artwork by: Michelle Acuff, Dave Beck, Benjamin Bellas, Collin Bradford, Tiffany Carbonneau, Kia Carscallen, Hunter Cole, Annica Cuppetelli, Yi Joanna Dai, Mary Rachel Fanning, Adam Farcus, Tannaz Farsi, Laura Foster, Mahlon Huston, Louise Kames, Marina Kelly, Geoffrey Krawczyk, Richard Krueger, Robin Mandel, Evan Mann, Cristobal Mendoza, Daniel Olsen, Brian Peters, Nicole Pietrantoni, Randy Polumbo, Meghan Reynard, Alex Schlegel, Michael Sirianni, Ben Skinner, Scott Stibich, Annie Strader, Briana Trudell, Renee van der Stelt, and Jessica Westbrook.
