Glo Downtown Illuminates Westfield in March

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Realty NJ# 9483506

We tend to focus more on math and sciences when it comes to education. Sometimes, we forget how important art is to a child's development. It also enhances everybody's life overall. Art exists to trigger a response. So, when art sparks a fond childhood memory, you know your day is only going to get better. Glo Downtown wants to be that spark when they illuminate downtown Westfield throughout March.

Relive some of your fondest childhood memories. From March 5th to the 21st, Glo Downtown illuminates downtown Westfield with 15 jumbo seesaws that light up and make sound when in use at the North Ave Train Station.

Impulse Seesaw Origins

Click here for an instant "No Strings Attached" valuation of your home.The brainchild of two Harvard alumni, Impulse seesaws invites public interaction that harkens back to the childhood days on the playground. A series of 15 huge seesaws inhabit the North Ave Train Station. Each seesaw accommodates up to 4 people (two on each end). Once aboard, the up and down motion lights up the seesaw and creates sound.

Over the past several years, this public art installation has traveled the world over. It started in Montreal and then moved across the pond to England before moving on to Australia. Eventually, it made its way back to the US with stops in major cities like New York City, Boston, Detroit, and Scottsdale.
