GLOW Nights Celebration
January 17 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
GLOW Nights is a month-long “must see” exhibit of original art installations that use colored and white light as a medium to celebrate the unique phenomena found in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem (GYE). Produced by Jackson Hole Public Art, GLOW Nights artists draw inspiration from the megafauna, calderas, hot springs, and dramatic vistas that inspire.
“Public Art brings excitement to our public gathering spaces and creates art that is free and accessible for all people. Public art installations benefit local businesses by increasing foot traffic day and night, driving regional visitors, and beautifying public spaces,” commented Anna Olson, JH Chamber of Commerce CEO/President. “GLOW is the perfect antidote to the dark of winter, dynamic art, warm lights and local artists adding to our beautiful sense of place in Town and Teton Village” Olson added.
GLOW Nights will open on December 23rd and will be celebrated with a free family event held on Friday, January 17th from 5-7pm. The event will start at the Center for the Arts with a light installation on the Center lawn and music by the Jackson Hole Chorale, then will move to the Town Square, and end at the Save the Block greenspace. A “species” lantern parade will lead participants from the Center to the installations, where hot beverages, snacks, and music will be provided at each location.
