DENVER — Immersive before it was trendy, “Lumonics Immersed” is a multi-sensory journey to refresh your body, mind and spirit, produced by one of the first and longest-running light art studios in the U.S. The experience features original special effects, music and video projection and light sculptures. The next date at Lumonics Immersed is Saturday at 8 p.m. at the Lumonics Light & Sound Gallery at 800 E. 73rd Ave. Unit 11 in Denver. Reserve your tickets at Lumonics.net/immersed
Saturdays 8:00 PM– 10:30 PM
Immersions are never repeated.
- Mel and Dorothy Tanner’s Light Sculptures connected to DMX *
- Original Special Effects, Music and Video Projection
- DMX and the special effects orchestrated live by Lumonics’ Marc Billard
* a lighting system to control the LED light sculptures
Since Dorothy Tanner passed in July, 2020, we have been restoring many light sculptures never before seen in Colorado. Some needed repairs, and all needed to be converted to LEDs. Most were in the original Lumonics Theatre in Miami. Their addition has helped make Lumonics Immersed a more powerful transport vehicle in keeping with the mission of Mel and Dorothy Tanner to affect people on physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels.
The performance music was composed by Dorothy when she was in her 70s and 80s.
The visuals are derived from hand-painted slides by the Tanners, and videos by the Tanners and Tanner/Billard.
We now present this every Saturday.
Second Sunday Free Guided Tour
Upcoming Dates: April 10 and May 8
“Lumonics is offering Second Sunday Guided Tours of their Light & Sound Gallery. Barry Raphael, a longtime Lumonics member and co-archivist, will act as tour guide, inviting visitors to immerse themselves in light and color, view works by the late artists Dorothy and Mel Tanner and learn about the history of the collective."
Light complimentary refreshments are served at both events.
“A far cry from the quietude more typical of the average art exhibit,
Lumonics’ gallery space is a welcome bombardment of
the senses, with a rich history to boot.”
John Mazzetta, Editor of The Sentry, Univ. of Colorado Denver
