Ballroom Luminoso

"Ballroom Luminoso" by Tucson based artist team Creative Machines, Inc. is located at the underpass of Theo/Malone and  IH-35. The artwork transforms an ordinary underpass into a community shadow theater. A series of six brilliantly lit, color-changing chandeliers hang from the underpass casting bright shapes and colored shadows approximately 40 feet. Each installation is made from recycled bike parts and other metals with LED lights used to allow for creative expression with minimal maintenance. The piece is culturally relevant and gives new meaning and significance to the Theo/Malone Underpass. 


The artwork enables neighborhood connectivity through creative placemaking.  This color changing installation hangs from an underpass, casting bright colored shadows.  The piece is culturally relevant and gives new meaning and significance to the area.  The artwork is made from recycled bike parts.
