(SANTA MONICA) September 12, 2013 –The 3rd edition of the late night art event Glow returns to Santa Monica on September 28 from 7pm to 3am. Fifteen artists from around the globe will showcase an incredible array of original works on the beach, including the interactive art experience Colorfields by Steve Boyer.

Colorfields provides a unique opportunity for crowd participation and will unite the masses gathered on the sand for a wondrous experience with color, light and sound via the device that often separates us – our cell phones.

The participatory art experience will be centered at a location south of the pier on the beach in front of the Sea Castle apartments, between Loews and Shutters hotels. (View Map)

While it will be ongoing throughout the evening, Santa Monica-based public radio station KCRW is leading the charge for a mass gathering at 10pm to truly put the technologically-driven display to the test.

Participants will need to download a special smartphone app, which is available now for both iPhone and Android devices. As visitors move from location to location within the Colorfields zone, the app synchronizes locational information via GPS and the colors and sounds on their cell phones will change.

A large video projection will display the full field of users on the side of the Wyndham Hotel.

Glow attendees can also prepare for this special evening of art via an audio tour hosted by KCRW’s DJs. The official Glow Soundscape includes the voices of each artist talking about their creations, navigation notes and music for the journey.

Listen/download here and let KCRW guide you!

Glow is produced by the City of Santa Monica.
