Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens unveiled LightNights, a new summer evening event with a 3-D projection show as its centerpiece. LightNights takes place on 16 summer evenings from 7-10 p.m., between Aug. 17-Sept. 17.
Guests will have the opportunity to enjoy the lighted gardens and grounds, as well as music and refreshments throughout the Akron estate.
Every evening of LightNights includes live music and refreshments. The 3-D projection show and thrilling outdoor experience tells the story of the Seiberling legacy with lights, action and music, beginning at sundown. Animators and technologists from Paintscaping, Inc. in Los Angeles are creating the video mapping, projected onto the back of the Manor House, magically and mysteriously transforming the architecture into an extraordinary and ever-changing 3-D environment.
“The technology is new, so most of our guests have never seen anything like the projection show we’re presenting this summer. LightNights is an original and inventive outdoor evening event and a new way to experience the Estate and discover details about Stan Hywet and the Seiberling family,”said Linda Conrad, president and executive director of Stan Hywet.
Guests may stroll the light-filled gardens and grounds throughout the evening. LightNights is a separate admission and takes place from 7-10 p.m. on Aug. 17, 18, 20, 24, 25, 27, and 31, and Sept. 1, 3, 4, 7, 8, 10, 14, 15, and 17.
