Event Details

Light up with delight this winter! Visible light inspires us across cultures, reveals nature’s beauty, and contains clues to the history of space and time. Tonight at After Dark, join us for the opening night of Glow, a collection of ten luminous sculptures big and small inviting you to connect to, reflect on, and interact with light. Hear from select Glow artists about their work and dive into the processes that light up their sculptures. Also, enjoy a special performance beneath Luke Jerram’s Museum of the Moon from pianist Tammy Lynne Hall and soprano Leberta Loral. Don’t miss this joyful seasonal expansion of the Exploratorium’s iconic exhibits on light.

Glow features artworks by Michael Brown, CHiKA, Nick Dong, Alicia Eggert, Ekene Ijomena, Luke Jerram, Burt Libe, and Ames Palms.

Food and drinks will be available to purchase in our Seaglass Restaurant and at the outdoor bar in Gallery 5 to enjoy in those designated spaces during After Dark. Please note that there is no drinking or eating allowed elsewhere in the museum at this time.
