LexArts Announces New Public Art Initiative
Artist Craig Colorusso’s Sun Boxes Blends Music and the Power of the Sun
Temporary Installation at CentrePointe May 3-5
LexArts is pleased to announce that artist Craig Colorusso will bring his solar powered sound sculpture, Sun Boxes, to Lexington for a weekend-long installation. Colorusso’s work will be available to the public on May 3rd, 4th, and 5th at CenterPointe.
Sun Boxes, sculptural experimentation with sound and solar energy, is made up of twenty wooden “Sun Boxes” that are equipped with solar panels, speakers, amplifiers and electronic sound modules. Each Box is preloaded with a recorded guitar note and collectively Sun Boxes creates unique melodies that vary infinitely throughout the day depending on the amount of clouds and sun and even shadows of the participants.
LexArts CEO Jim Clark noted, “Colorusso’s work fits with the aesthetics of the public art program we are building here in Lexington- a temporary sonic piece which is akin to the Bill Fontana work, Surface Reflections, which continues to perform in our downtown.
The installation is the latest in a program that provides a platform for non-traditional and/or alternative forms of public art. Like Fontana, Colorusso began his artistic career as a musician and has evolved to join a growing number of artists that borrow ambient sounds and real-world noise as an integral part of their work.”
Colorusso, a self described “recovering musician’ added, “Sun Boxes is really my way of improvising with Mother Nature. The sounds are both soothing and energizing, not unlike the sounds that might accompany yoga and meditation.”

Artist Craig Colorusso’s solar powered sound sculptures, Sun Boxes, will be installed on the grounds. Twenty independently-operated speakers preloaded with recorded guitar notes collectively create harmonious chords, which continually overlap and evolve into new, unique melodies. For each day the Sun Boxes are on view, Colorusso will mix up the sculptures’ arrangement to invite a more organic, atmospherically responsive interaction. The artist will be on hand throughout the weekend to engage with visitors in this pop-up meditative space. Free with museum admission.
