Picture It: National Cathedral Gets a Make Over

Here are some luminous pictures from the first showing of a new art project "Lighting to Unite" — a light show designed to ignite national and global unity. The project uses the National Cathedral in Washington, DC as its canvas.

Gerry Hofsetter, a Swiss artist, is responsible for these images, which include stars, human faces, and a mysterious woman in a kimono. According to the Washington Post he has displayed the British-flag on the white cliffs of Dover, hieroglyphics on the Great Pyramid, and a polar bear on an Antarctic iceberg.

About his most recent show in D.C., Hofstetter said: "Light is hope, fire is energy. These colors mean hope and energy."

Check out the pictures. Are you feeling the hope and energy?
