BALTIMORE (WJZ)–Charm City is about to turn into Light City.

Tim Scofield and Kyle Miller are building a giant peacock for Light City, taking over the Inner Harbor later this month.

The head is 12-feet tall, the tail feathers, when its open will be 21-feet by 35-feet wide, the designers say.

“It’s spotlighting a lot of local artists, it’s a great opportunity for people who might not know that Baltimore is full of artists that do this crazy stuff,” said Tim Scofield.

The peacock really represents old and new Baltimore.  The history of Baltimore with the steel, but then the newer Baltimore–of innovation and design, with the LED’s.

“It’s wirelessly controlled off of an iPad, throughout the festival, we will have all kinds of light displays going on,” said Tim.

The peacock is one of several works of art that will be on display for thousands to see.

Light City is March 28th through April 3rd.
