One night only, Saturday, July 18, Night Light: Multimedia Garden Party blankets SOMArts Cultural Center in luminous art installations, including audiovisual performances and performative interventions by 30 artists, and digital and cinematic projections by 27 artists.
This year Night Light evolves in a new direction: as an homage to the Bay Area’s rabble-rousers, trouble-makers, independents and outliers, in conjunction with Making a Scene: 50 Years of Alternative Bay Area Spaces (July 9–August 20). Making a Scene features more than 30 additional artists whose work can be seen during Night Light. That's the work of almost 90 Bay Area artists, in just one night!
Now in its fifth year, Night Light utilizes SOMArts’ post-industrial indoor space and grounds, including the garden path, street-side loading bay, theater, Bay Gallery and Main Gallery to display a multitude of applications of light in art. An update is forthcoming to this page by June 1, 2015 with the full details of Night Light’s performances, as well as exhibition highlights!
Tickets are $12 in advance & $15 at the door; advance tickets guarantee entry on the night of the event: http://nightlightparty.eventbrite.com.
SOMArts’ exhibition programs are generously supported by the San Francisco Arts Commission and The San Francisco Foundation, and are sponsored in part by a grant from Grants for the Arts. Making a Scene is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
