Story by Bernie Petit

 When you think of public art, you typically think of some monumental structure. Passing Through Light, the public art installation at the Interstate 77 Underpass at West Trade Street in Charlotte shatters that perception.
 
The immersive public artwork by light artist Erwin Redl consists of three sequences of light that slowly loop through a color gradient, turning what was an unwelcoming space into a visual, dynamic gateway for vehicles and pedestrians as they enter and exit Charlotte’s northwest corridor.
