Installation “time” at the Park Illumination at Grugapark

From 8th February to 17th March the Park Illumination is mounted at Grugapark in Essen. Cazador-del-sol presents the first illuminated installation in the middle of the Dahlia Arena. This time René Hildebrand’s sun-field is all about time.

The families of severely ill children, who are treated in the nearby university clinic, can live here for some time to take a rest from the stressful daily routine at the clinic. We would like to support this wonderful idea:

Therefore we donate 6.00 Euros to the Ronald McDonald House of the McDonald's Kinderhilfe Stiftung (McDonald’s Help for Children Foundation) for every Cazador-del-sol® sold from our special edition “time” – so that this place becomes a bright spot…

"Hunderte "Sonnenfänger", also geschliffene Plexiglasscheiben, bilden die Zeiger einer Uhr.
Ein schöner Effekt und ein Magnet für Fotografen."
