Laumeier Sculpture Park will be open for evening admission to host a series of new events and educational programming this Fall and Winter! Laumeier After Dark is a new series designed to provide visitors the opportunity to explore the park in a different light—that of the moon! Laumeier’s mission is dedicated to engaging community through art and nature. A portion of that commitment involves making art available for viewing in all phases of nature, including every season, day and night. Stationary art is fluid when exposed to nature. Colors change, shadows change, silhouettes reveal shapes that inspire a new characteristic of the figure. Sculpture can take on an entirely different form at night, and we want to share this experience with our visitors!
Light The Way, the first of two major events in the After Dark series, is inspired by our current exhibition, David Hutson, Memory & Desire: A Personal Exploration of Neon Art, Past and Present. The event is open to all visitors to explore the Park at night. Join us for an action-packed evening filled with live music, art activities, a sculpture scavenger hunt (with prizes to win), face-painting, fire pits, s’mores, lawn games, food and beverage available for purchase and so much more!
Fire & Light, is the second major events in the After Dark series. More details to come. Be sure to check back!
This is a FREE event for all ages.
