Lighting Up Again: Santa Monica Preps for Glow 2010
For its first year in 2008, Santa Monica's all-night arts and music event on the beach Glow drew 200,000 revelers--although its planners had anticipated only 25-50k attendees. Now plans are in motion for Glow 2010, a second attempt at the dusk-to-dawn party which the City's Cultural Affairs Manager Jessica Cusick hails as an opportunity for us to celebrate [the] community’s unique attributes as a center for culture and innovation," according to a press release.
In the planning stages, Glow 2010 is at work with acclaimed artists, like Celeste Boursier-Mougenot, an aural-visual artist whose work incorporates found objects set up as "performing sculptures." Boursier-Mougenot is due to visit Santa Monica this week to research possible locations for his work for the event. Further, Glow’s prestigious Curatorial Committee has been meeting to select an exciting array of artists who will once again ensure the total transformation of the beach, Santa Monica Pier and Palisades Park. They'll announce their first selections next month.
