Brave Berlin, one of the founding minds behind Cincinnati's larger-than-life light and art festival BLINK, has announced a new project: The team will illuminate an installation entitled "Beam of Hope" at The Banks on April 10.

"We believe that brighter days are ahead and that Cincinnati and the world will be forever changed for the good. Let this small gesture remind us all that we are in this together and that we will come out of it a brighter more unified people," Steve McGowan of Brave Berlin said in an email. 

The creative production company has teamed up with Vincent Lighting to create an installation that features six Clay Paky Mythos high density light units offering a total of 138,000 lumens. 

The installation, "a beacon of solidarity" during these uncertain times, will be illuminated daily from dusk until dawn until the pandemic is under control.
