Choreographer Lauri Stallings and her troupe glo have been invited by the New York–based public art organization Creative Time to participate in Drifting in Daylight: Art in Central Park, which will feature sculptural, social and interactive works commissioned by the Central Park Conservancy, according to the New York Times.

 The full participant list has not been released. The Times cited light artist Spencer Finch, whose work is featured in the Woodruff Arts Center’s Cafe 1280, and video and photo artist David Levine. 

Creative Time director Nato Thompson, who is curating the 2015 Flux Night, met Stallings during studio visits with Atlanta artists in preparation for Flux Night. He also invited Stallings and glo for a six-week residency during the run of the piece, May 15 to June 20. The troupe will mount community “experiences” when not performing in the park’s North Woods.
