About The Event
We Romanians are the world’s greatest specialists in longing, and we have a beautiful word to prove it. We utter “dor” for love, for homesick, for desire, for nostalgia and so on. And lately we’ve got even an artistic installation to proclaim our yearning, which travels the world popping up on the shores of the rivers that travers major European and American cities, as a point of imaginary embarkment to everybody and everything we love. After London and Chicago, the luminous sign that reads “Mi-e dor de tine”/ “I miss you”, created by the Daisler Association as a distillation of the feelings shared by many expatriate Romanians, has arrived in Washington, D.C., where it will spread its message from The Wharf beginning February 14th just in time for Valentine’s Day and its Romanian counterpart, the Dragobete.
The project is made possible through a generous donation from CEC Bank, with the support of the Romanian Cultural Institute in New York, the Romanian Embassy to the United States, and Romanian at Heart. Part of Lights on Romania festival.
