Glow will fill the hours between dusk to dawn with compelling, enchanting and effervescent sights and sounds situated in spaces and times that expand possibilities for how the public experiences contemporary art. Artists were commissioned to create unique and inviting works that welcome the public to be both audience and actor for twelve celebratory hours. Inspired by the wildly successful Nuit Blanche in Paris, Glow takes its spirit from the fabled grunion that live in local waters and come ashore several times a year to spawn in the sand creating a momentary sensation of iridescence.
Glow will be taking place on the Santa Monica Pier, on the beach north and south of the Pier and in Palisades Park, in the two blocks between Colorado and Santa Monica Boulevards on Saturday, July 19th, 2008. Beginning at 7PM and lasting until 7:00AM, it will be a free event for all. Click here to download the official schedule for the event.
