“Glow” is coming back to Santa Monica on September 25th. The event will feature 20 installations from local and international artists that will be scattered around Santa Monica Beach, the pier, and Palasades Park. The biennial event will take place from 7 p.m. to 3 a.m.
The first Glow in 2008 had over 200,000 attendees, but the event was widely panned as not very interesting and horribly organized. The concept of a city-sponsored all night long art party on the beach is a great one, so it was puzzling to us how the organizers botched such an easy concept last time. Hopefully this year they will be able to live up to the hype and the artists are a bit more inspired than last time.
