Light show art coming

The circular stairway of the Civic Center Plaza at 150 East Main St. in Hillsboro will be transformed into a unique canvas for art in the coming weeks. Using project mapping software, the staircase will become the surface for an animated light projection dancing in time to music.

The “Symphony of Light” display takes place Saturday, Nov. 30, from 5:35 to 6:30 p.m. and Tuesday, Dec. 3 from 5 to 6:30 p.m.

The display was created by artist and game designer Patrick Coan of Portland.
