Luminaries is an annual light installation stretched above the Winter Garden in Brookfield Place. The glowing canopy, designed by LAB at Rockwell Group, is made up of 650 lights that constantly change in color and intensity. Not only is the installation pretty just to look at, you can interact with it too. By placing your hand on one of the touch-sensitive Wishing Stations, you can send a ‘wish’ to the lanterns above which will pulse with color! Brookfield Place will donate $1, up to $25,000, for every wish made during the holiday season to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer, a national non-profit that is committed to raising funds for research to develop new, improved and less toxic treatments for pediatric cancer. The wishing experience follows the light show for approximately 55 minutes between 10am and 8pm.
