Come play in the glow of Lighthouse at Alwun House. An eclectic electric exhibit. With gallery lights off, each piece emits its own light. Light up the Holidays amongst luminous art installed throughout Alwun House gallery and into the gardens. Curator Landy Headley invites guests to bask in the warm glow of over 25 artists. Works display imaginative integration of mediums, from functional to conceptual; light-boxes, lamps, art shrines, video, interactive light installation, neon, LED, fire, mixed media. If it glows, flickers, flashes, video, neon, shines in a darkened room, it’s on display.

EXHIBITING ARTISTS: Holly Anderson, Tato Caraveo, Sylvia Frost, Tracie Stanley, Ronda Hampton, Landy Headley, Valerie Hunt, Steve Gompf, Mark Hughes, Maggie Keane , Patricia Lam, Mike Little, Kyllan Maney, Katie Marchant, Mike Miskowski, Jamie Nededog, Susan Olson, Catie Raya, Rick Rowen, Brandon Sullivan, Amber Wallace, David Whipple, PLUS the ASU Neon Art Club.

Gallery and stage come alive with hyperbolic infused interactive light installations creating a transcendent aesthetic experience. ASU Neon Art Club demonstrates glass bending. Musical hijinks, Dance, sing-along, more art, and luminosity. Prize for “most creative” illuminated attire. Light Refreshments, Cash Bar, 21+.

PAO is a collective of 16 musicians representing some 20 other musical groups includingSister Sledge, There Is Danger, Drunken Immortals, Dry River Yacht Club, Wooden Indian, The Lowlands, Fatigo, Ritmo Latino, Playboy Manbaby, The Lovelost, & Mariachi de Grand Ave to name a few.

WHY PAO? They are enlightening. Their music conveys a bigger message than just partying. “It’s about humanity and it’s about what are the things that are wrong in our society and can we do to fix them,” says David Marquez. “It’s not just about us it’s for the community for the La Raza humans. We are all around the world and afrobeat is a music that can reach out to people. There are things that need to be talked about that are not easy sometimes. But when your dancing and you hear about it there is a message that sometimes maybe, just maybe, we can make a little difference.”
