Secret Sky Barn: Glows at Night
Artist Catie Newell spent two years turning an old barn with open slats into an eerie art-barn that glows from within at night, as if filled with possessed livestock. The glowing barn is supposed to encourage people to drive all the way out to this forgotten part of Michigan. At night. [ Team]

Secret Sky Barn: Glows at Night

Just drove by at 9 at night. There was nothing going on there. No glow, no smiley....

[Nina, 09/03/2020]

Artist Catie Newell's "Secret Sky" -- an old barn out in the country that glows from within at night -- was installed in 2019 and is still heavily promoted. Maybe the light bulb burned out?
