Boon After Dark

A temporary art installation of illuminated, contemporary structures to light up in the wintry nights in the heart of Hamilton.

Our annual Boon After Dark sculpture installation has been so well received by our community that for 2021 we have decided to expand! This year we have two interactive sculptures in the grassy area of Garden Place AND one on the boardwalk at Victoria on the River.

These light-up sculptures are playful and family-friendly, great fun during the day but best viewed after dark for the full effect.

The three sculptures coming to Hamilton this year are:

Octopoda by Amigo and Amigo
Full Spectrum by Anthony van Dorsten
Deep Thought by Hybycozo

Please tag us in your photos at #boonafterdark2021, we love to see everyone enjoying these stunning artworks!
