Created by Artists Day Christensen and Brook Robertson, Aurora Borealis is an art installation in the Eccles Theater Lobby, representing the wonder and beauty of the natural phenomenon that is the Northern Lights. Its our hope that hundreds of suspended ribbons across the large lobby will engage merry makers downtown with the colors and magic of the winter sky.

The Aurora Borealis can be viewed in the Eccles Theater Grand Lobby from Main Street through the beginning of January 2021. Please be sure to wear a mask and maintain social distancing.

Day has 35 years of experience developing public art projects for libraries, light rail stations, airports, state capitol buildings, recreation centers, medical facilities, and public parks.
These projects range from; fabricated and cast bronze sculpture, formed glass, murals, paving designs, light sculpture, earthworks, to suspended sculptures. Materials have included, bronze, glass, stone, laser cut metals, wood, and stainless steel.
