Glow is free and open to the public.

Prepare for the large scale art event with the help of KCRW’s Glow Soundscape, an audio tour hosted by KCRW’s DJs with the voices of each artist talking about their creations, navigation notes and music for the journey.

Download it in advance and let KCRW guide your experience during one of the largest public art events in the world!

Featured artists include Aphidoidea, Jonathan Markowitz Bijur, Mathieu Briand, Marni Gittleman, Steven Hull, Glenn Kaino, Shana Koenig, Rebeca Mendez, Patrick Scott, Victoria Vesna,Karen Atkinson, Djoko Walujo, Susie Allen, Marvin Tunney and Janet Echelman, who recently appeared on KCRW’s Guest DJ Project.

LA-based artist Steve Boyer will be launching the interactive art experience Colorfields, which 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.

While it will be ongoing throughout the evening, he is encouraging attendees to gather at 10pm to put his technologically-driven display to the test.

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.

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 Colorfield 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.
