About The Event
NOTE: online reservations for headphones are no longer available, but you can still rent them on site.
Silent Light, presented by Hancock Whitney, transforms the grounds of the Walter Anderson Museum of Art into an illuminated wonderland inspired by nature and the winter solstice, featuring Anderson-inspired light installations, projections, and 3-D sculpture.
Silent Light culminates with the most unique light party of its kind in Coastal Mississippi. The Light Festival & Silent Disco features a variety of performances and experiences, including one-of-a-kind projections (by Colin McQuilkin Design) of Walter Anderson art animated and digitally-mapped onto the facades of the Museum and the Ocean Springs Community Center. A 6PM concert performance by singer-songwriter Carey Hudson is followed by DJ Logic and DJ Zapot – who send music and vibes directly to guests’ personal LED-equipped wireless headphones.
Admission to the light festival is free; Silent Disco headphones can be reserved for $10.

DJ Logic), a trio with Steve Molitz & Freekbass (Headtronics), a jazz project with Georgian prodigy Beka Gochiasvili, and as a member of Grammy-winning Arturo O’Farrill & The Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra’s The Offense of the Drum album. He also has a long list of other collaborations with artists ranging from the likes of Bob Weir, John Mayer, Medeski Martin and Wood, Christian McBride, O.A.R., Carly Simon, Marcus Miller, Jack Johnson, Vernon Reid, Warren Haynes, Charlie Hunter, Jack DeJohnette, Ben Harper, Mos Def, The Roots, Bernie Worrell, Bill Laswell, Melvin Gibbs, Fred Wesley, Sean Kuti and many more.
