Sliglow: Drawing On The City

Sliglow at Culture Night Sligo on Friday Sept 25th

A site-specific, collaborative event will happen at the Glasshouse Hotel overlooking the Garavogue River as part of Culture Night Sligo on Friday 25th September. Sliglow will take place on the View Bar level, and on the outside of the Glasshouse, facing the river at ground level; presented by artists Tinka Bechert, Lisa Vandegrift Davala and Vanya Lambrecht Ward, but created by you.

Inspired by the glass clad architecture, and its spectacular views over the city, this will be held as part of Culture Night Sligo, open to the public; encouraging families and children to participate in the creation of a site-specific work of art, in collaboration with a team of professional artists from the Sligo area.

The event will consist of drawing on glass; making slides to use in projections onto the glass; and using glow sticks (that can be bent and connected to each other) forming light sculptures; creating installations and imagery on the inside and outside of the massive windows that overlook the city. As the evening progresses, the inscribed, projected, and glowing works will be seen from around the city and reflected onto participants as well as the surrounding cityscape.

This celebration of creativity in Sligo will also feature live music by Mood Indigo featuring Yvonne Cunningham on vocals and special guests.

Music and ART making kicks off at 7 pm. At 10 pm the venue’s lights go out for a final view of the light sculpture. It’s time to SLIGLOW !!!
