Sun Lanterns

A Local Light Installation

Location:
Intersection of
3rd Avenue and Marshall Way 
Scottsdale, AZ 85251 

The 23 individual Sun Lanterns are made of steel, plexiglass, and solarpowered lights. Ranging from 3–8 feet tall, they are layered with horizontal plexiglass strips, inspired by colors found in the landscape of Arizona. The lanterns absorb sunlight throughout the day, and then, as the sun sets, each lantern flickers on to reenergize its environment.
