SANTA CRUZ — The night sky was lit brightly with bolts of flames and electric lights Saturday evening during the annual Glow event at the Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History.
The festival of fire and light drew a huge crowd to a closed-off Cooper Street, Abbott Square and surrounding grounds at the museum. Visitors were able to take in the grandeur of fire-breathing cannonades, glow sticks, lighted artworks, interactive digital arts, LED sculptures, and scads of hands-on activities for the entire family.
Coupled with the show was a large colorful sculpture of balloons entitled, “Blue Sky, Same & Different,” created by South Korean artist HongSeok Goh. His work was comprised of a series of massive umbrella-shaped balloon canopies that filled the entire ceiling area of the museum’s atrium and a giant white unicorn made of white balloons.
