Glow! Santa Monica’s dusk-to-dawn art extravaganza: 7/19 7pm-7am

In one luminous all-night event, “Glow” will transform the historic Santa Monica Pier and adjacent Santa Monica Beach on Saturday, July 19th from 7pm to 7am. Inspired by the wildly successful Nuit Blanche in Paris, Glow will showcase a collection 20 multi-media art installations by international artists who will entertain visitors with compelling, enchanting and effervescent sights, sounds and interactive activities. One highlight will be the solar-powered ferris wheel, which will host a revolving orchestra, and be complimented by “tumbleweeds” of recycled material that will float on the ocean illuminated by LEDs. The path under the pier will be transformed into “Neptune’s Net” while projected images and sound will heighten the experience. GLOW is the only event to have ever received permission to use the historic Santa Monica Pier and beach as an all-night venue and more than 25,000 people are expected to attend. Admission is free.
