Sunday Reset: Meditations in Sound + Light | Craig Colorusso
Drop-in for a FREE family friendly, restorative day on the Momentary Green.
Interactive light + sound art installations come together for *the* perfect Sunday in Bentonville! Drop by throughout the day to enjoy the work of Rogers-based Sound Sculptor Craig Colorusso. Linger longer to hear special musical performances or partake in an immersive yoga class (or both!). Check out the day’s schedule and more about each experience below!
Did you know? You may have experienced some of Colorusso’s work around Northwest Arkansas, from Fayetteville with the Sound Swings at Uptown to Bentonville on the Coler Trails.
Whether you’re an earlier riser or go more for an afternoon hang, Sound + Light is here for you.
Register for free in advance and let us know which one you are. Plus, you’ll be doing us a solid by knowing how many people to expect to ensure we’re social distancing properly outside. Don’t fret if you’re unsure. If you drop by anytime throughout the day, we’ll have 6ft circles to help as well.
Soothing and energizing sounds will immerse from solar powered Sun Boxes throughout the day, with performances and yoga classes occurring at the designated times below. We recommended arriving early to claim your preferred socially distanced circle on the Momentary Green. Circles are first come, first served.
7:30—8:30AM: Sunrise Yoga
10—11AM: Lady Bug Cathedral
2—3PM: Lady Bug Cathedral
4—5 PM: Lady Bug Cathedral
6—7 PM Meditation with CUBEMUSIC
- *CUBEMUSIC starts at dusk
Sun Boxes is a solar powered sound installation of twenty speakers, each operating independently with a different loop set to play a guitar note continuously. These guitar notes collectively make a Bb chord. Because the loops are different in length, once the piece begins they continuously overlap and it slowly evolves over time.
CUBEMUSIC is a sound and light piece that consists of six aluminum cubes, and transforms spaces into a web of sound, light, and shadows. This will be just the second time CUBEMUSIC has been outside.
Lady Bug Cathedral is a musical composition on bowed guitar. Originally composed for the Delaware Art Museum, the piece has evolved and several sections will be performed throughout the day.

By the 1990s, he was in touring bands and started his own record company. After touring the United States tirelessly Colorusso found himself in one too many bars and decided to expand his musical career by incorporating composition and improvisation.
