Danville Calendar

Mon., May 31 – Mon., Sep. 6
Shrumen Lumen 
@Danville Library and The Village Theatre
The Town of Danville is pleased to present its newest temporary Public Art Installation: Shrumen Lumen. On display in downtown Danville from Memorial Day through Labor Day 2021. The sculptures were conceived and created by a Bay Area group of engineers and artists: The FoldHaus Artist Collective. By day, the 12 x 14 ft mushrooms are an ethereal white, at night they come alive, as the mushroom caps open and close and a rainbow of LED lights cycle through from top to bottom back to the top again in a stunning display of art and engineering, creating a surprising and delightful experience. 

Sat., Jun. 19 – Sun., Aug 22
