After Dark: GLOW—what an awesome night! We had a packed and glowing house on a dark and wintery evening. Thanks to everyone who joined us for such a lively and colorful event.
Arching above the Central Gallery is Cubatron Core**, a tremendous torus of cascading colors by Mark Lottor. Twinkling through the gloom of Fujiko Nakaya’s Fog Bridge is Michael Brown’s playful garden of Playaflies—LED-laden “trees” that respond to movement. Steel Love Design invited guest to spin their flashing, cut-metal sculpture The Whirld, and Peter Hudson’s Homouroboros** animates the Plaza with outsized, cinematic monkey business.
**Both Homouroboros and Cubatron Core will remain on view through the end of December.

Built by Mark Lottor, the Cubatron is a 3-D light sculpture made from eight-by-eight-foot modular cubes, each containing 1,000 individually programmable RGB LEDs that produce cascades of color in spectacularly dynamic patterns. To see the Cubatron in action, click here.
