A large-scale projection light show is being planned for next year. Lumenocity ended its popular light-mapping program with a fourth and final production this year.

Now, leaders from the Haile Foundation, AGAR, ArtWorks, Brave Berlin and the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber are making plans for a program called "BLINK Cincinnati."

The four-day light and art festival is set for Oct. 12-15, 2017. It will run along the Cincinnati Bell Connector route from the Banks to Findlay Market.

In a statement, organizers say "Blink will feature dozens of large-scale architectural projection mapping locations throughout the city, the same art form that brought Music Hall to life during Lumenocity."

More details are expected to be released Tuesday, Oct. 4.
