Wednesday, August 24th from 5:30-8:30pm, come stroll recreated alleyways in Downtown Chattanooga for the launch of Passageways – a joint program of AIA Tennessee and River City Company. With five imaginative installations in four Downtown alleyways from design teams representing Chattanooga, New York City and Sydney, Australia.

Check out the Stargaze installation alleyway. The Stargaze installation, created by Jeian Jeong, Ryan Whitby, Adam Paikowsky, will be located downtown at 715 Market Street. The installation interconnects light beacons suspended above and along the alleyway. Stargaze will utilize the Star API provided by NASA and the American Museum of Natural History’s Digital Universe Data to glow and mimic the stars in the night sky.
