Lower Levels of Binghamton Garage to Close for LUMA Preparations
Some people who live, work or shop in downtown Binghamton may have to find an alternate place to park for several days because of the upcoming LUMA Projection Arts Festival.
The two lowest floors of the State Street parking garage - Levels C and D - have been closed since last week.
A sign at the ramp entrance now advises users that Level B will soon be closing. The notice indicates that level will be closed as of Thursday. It warns that "violators will be towed."
The Binghamton garage will be the setting for "Horizon" by Playmodes Studio of Spain. LUMA organizers describe it as "an immersive installation that plays with our limits of spatial perception by creating a window onto infinite. Light, sound, space and perspective are all examined on a journey that takes us beyond the limits of physical reality."
LUMA will be the setting for the United States debut of "Horizon."
This year's LUMA event is to be held September 9 and 10 at several downtown Binghamton sites.
All levels of the State Street parking facility are expected to be reopened on September 12.
The city-owned garage was used as the site for one previous LUMA feature. Thousands of people viewed a walk-through art installation called "Phasing Rain" in 2019.
