Meet SONARC

SONARC, created by artist Brian Bush, is our latest public art collaboration located outside the Duke Energy Performing Art Center in Downtown Raleigh. 

Hundreds of polycarbonate tubes create an ethereal cloud-like effect during the day and an interactive luminescent sculpture in the evening. Individuals can interact with the sculpture by singing into a microphone located in the SE column; in response to changes in pitch, SONARC will emit patterns and different colors of light.
