Solar-powered luminaries on display at Lexington Arts and Science Center

Solar-powered luminaries for decorating and illuminating outdoor spaces are on display at the Living Arts & Science Center through July 15.

An ECOART grant from the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government enabled the center to solicit original designs of functional, solar-powered luminaries.

On Thursday, the public may learn more about solar power and see the luminaries at The Art and Science of Solar Power.

The University of Kentucky's solar-powered car will be at the event, as will LexTran's Colt Trolley, which will provide rides and show off its hybrid technology.

Several interactive alternative-energy activities will be available for visitors during the evening of cutting-edge education.

Participants may create a luminary to take home.
