The Brewery Arts Center has received a new video wall that was purchased with funding from a grant from the Robert Z. Hawkins Foundation.
The digital wall is comprised of 16 LED panels that set up a 13.5-foot by 7.5-foot wall but can also be configured in a variety of ways.
Although there will be many artistic uses for the video wall to help the Brewery Arts Center fulfill its mission of cultivating arts and culture for all, it will also be a helpful safety tool when the Levitt AMP Carson City free summer concert series begins July 10.
The video wall will not only be used to enhance the concert experience for those who are viewing The Change Companies Stage on the campus of the Brewery Arts Center from further away than previous concerts due to social distancing but also to message the crowd safely and effectively.
If social distance guidelines are in place during the Levitt AMP Carson City free summer concert series, the video wall will adopt a traffic light system to help remind concert goers of their surroundings during the concert. If everyone is properly social distancing it will be a green signal on the screen, if people begin to wander into the space of others, it will go yellow and if the crowd gets dangerously close to one another, a red signal will appear and music will stop until proper social distancing resumes.
“Sometimes the music gets into you and you forget your surroundings,” says Executive Director Gina Lopez. “The new wall will remind concert goers to adhere to the current guidelines while enjoying the concert.”
The Brewery Arts Center also looks forward to being able to use the video wall in a variety of ways including being able to start outdoor movies earlier due to the quality of picture and being able to view the screens easily in the daylight. The video wall will also be available to rent to other entities for events around Carson City.
