The skies of New York City were lit up November 27th through November 29th in 2012 with vibrant shafts of laser light viewable to millions of New Yorkers. Artist Yvette Mattern brought her "Global Rainbow, After the Storm" work to the city, powered by lasers from Lightwave International. Organized in response to Hurricane Sandy, seven beams of high power laser light were projected over communities hit hard by the storm, originating on Manhattan's lower west side and spanning across Brooklyn toward the Rockaways. The installation aimed to symbolize hope and act as a call to action to support the communities that were devastated by the storm.
The presentation incorporated a fundraising initiative, encouraging financial support for two organizations that are providing relief for victims of Hurricane Sandy: Waves for Water: http://www.wavesforwater.org. New York Foundation for the Arts Emergency Relief Fund: http://www.nyfa.org/donation.asp
