Miss Expanding Universe III (2014) – William Bennett

Miss Expanding Universe III is a Sculpture Pageant that falls in line with and joins the ancient history of Winter Solstice Celebrations.  An illuminated sculpture, floating in the air, will appear and float through the atmospheric space of Let There be Light.  A group of smaller air born objects will appear from multiple areas around the site.  All the sculptures will gather near the lake, expand into the universe, and then return to earth. Members of the UVA sculpture community will collaborate in this performance.
