RoboLights is headed to Detroit for 2019

RoboLights spent its final Holiday season at the home of Kenny Irwin in 2018 and now word comes that if you want to check out the artist’s, let’s say unique, Christmas light display in 2019 you’re going to have to do to Michigan.

The Desert Sun reports that the Museum of Contemporary Art in Detroit will host the installation this year as Irwin searches for a permanent spot to put RoboLights in the Coachella Valley.

RoboLights joins the Mirror House as things that became famous in Palm Springs, but then moved to Michigan and, at this rate, I wouldn’t be surprised if Goldenvoice announces Coachella 2020 will take place in Flint.

Despite the Detroit exhibition, Irwin told the newspaper that he still believes there is a home for RoboLights in Palm Springs.

“It’s my dream to create a permanent and immersive art and light exhibit in Palm Springs,” Irwin said. “It’ll be the world’s first amusement park for the visual arts.”

Luckily, it appears that Candy Cane Lane isn’t being run out of town by obnoxious neighbors, so you should still be able to go there to check out the lights in 2019.
