Once the golden hues of the Oklahoma sunset faded to deep blue twilight, the vivid shades of pink, red, orange, purple, blue and green began to flash under the feet of adults and children frolicking in Campbell Art Park.

Since opening last month outside the new Oklahoma Contemporary Art Center, New York City-based artist Jen Lewin's light installation "Aqueous" has beckoned people to stroll, dance or play along its winding interactive pathways — and hundreds have accepted the invitation.

"It is a joy to experience. I personally have enjoyed just watching people engage with it and the smiles, the laughter, the joy. It's beautiful to see, particularly in a time like this," said Oklahoma Contemporary Artistic Director Jeremiah Matthew Davis.
