Imagine harnessing nature’s most powerful force — the sun — within a single building. Sounds impossible, but it’s exactly the sort of thing at which the New Weather Group excels. The New York-based art collective is helping Cleveland architectural firm studioTECHNE mark its move to The Sculpture Center building on East 123rd Street with its Lights of Cleveland installation.

The four-member New Weather Group will strategically place 1,001 mirrors across the city to produce a large-scale art piece that will collect and direct sunlight throughout studioTECHNE’s offices and gallery space. The goal is to emphasize the impact of the sun, especially in an agriculturally dependent, but atmospherically unpredictable area such as the Midwest.

“I’m hoping it gives people a reason to participate in a piece of art,” says studioTECHNE’s Marc Ciccarelli. In the weeks leading up to the big reveal, special announcements will be printed on small glass mirrors and sent to a select group of Clevelanders as a way to raise awareness about the project. Everyone is welcome to attend the installation’s public unveiling.
