CALL FOR LIGHT ART

Lusio is searching for light artists or artists working with light to participate in the 3rd annual
Lusio. A Night to Awaken
on Aug 10th, 2018 at Volunteer Park

Wonder, Wander, Play, Explore

Lusio is a community driven event built for the community, by the community, to give a voice to light art and provide opportunities for this form of art to be seen in an accessible, public, & playful setting.
This event features light artists from across the region incorporating their art directly into the nature of the park for a very special one night only, family friendly, free event focusing on light art. The first two events featured as many as 35 installations set throughout the park and brought in thousands of spectators!

Be part of the magic of Lusio!!
