ALTERED LIGHT AT NIGHT: NIGHTTIME RECEPTION: May 15, 2021 from 5 – 11pm

Join us as we light up the night! On the eve of the International Day of Light, and the second to last weekend to see the show, we will be hosting open hours of Altered Light at night so that you can see this collection of holograms and projected videos in their true glory! These works are truly spectacular, especially without the distraction daytime glare or reflection. We will also be showing River of Light, a pop-up outdoor laser installation by artist August Muth. This celebratory installation will reveal light’s material character while allowing for physical interaction.

We are allowing a limited number of visitors in the gallery at a time for COVID safety, but doors will be open and guests will be welcome to linger outside on our front porch and watch the laser light display!
