**** PLEASE NOTE: We are SOLD OUT and can no longer respond to emails to emails regarding ticket availability as we're busy preparing for the huge crowd! We will not begin selling any tickets at the door until 10pm or later, and then we will sell them on a one in, one out basis as advance ticket holders leave. In past years, cash ticket purchasers have had the best chance of getting in if they come later than 10pm.****
Night Light blankets SOMArts in one-night-only luminous art installations, including 5 audiovisual performances as well as digital and cinematic projections by more than 30 artists. Gather under the cover of darkness to discover time-based art that is not relegated to a stage or a flat screen on a gallery’s white wall––Night Light utilizes SOMArts’ post-industrial indoor space and grounds, including the garden path, street-side loading bay and galleries, to create an immersive experience. Highlights include electronic music set to desert landscapes, projection on a boat, video that reacts to the viewer in real-time, pop songs from a dystopian future and a VW Beetle covered in lights.

When & Where
SOMArts Cultural Center
Insurrection, Connection & Community Through the Arts
SOMArts cultivates access to the arts within the Bay Area by collaborating with community-focused artists and organizations. Together, we engage the power of the arts to provoke just and fair inclusion, cultural respect, and civic participation.
Founded in 1979, SOMArts embraces the entire spectrum of arts practice and cultural identity, and it is beloved in San Francisco as a truly multicultural, community-built space where cutting-edge events and counterculture commingle with traditional art forms.
When a SOMArts produced event is ticketed, you can buy it here on EventBrite. SOMArts frequently hosts independent productions that manage advance tickets separately, so you may be directed elsewhere from an event page.
