Glenelg is getting in on the colour and light fun as Random Acts of Light hits the beachside suburb for one night only. The City of Holdfast Bay Mayor, Stephen Patterson says this new event from 8-11pm this Saturday night, 28 November, will see Glenelg awash with glorious colour!
“Glenelg is always beautiful at night, but when the sun goes down this Saturday night, the Bay will literally take on a whole new light with bright, colourful, quirky art installations, projections and performances mounted by Illuminart and other independent artists,” he said.
“In Moseley Square, the Glenelg Town Hall and other buildings will be painted with colourful artworks and animations made from light, and a shining, shimmering ship will be beaming projections as it sails around. People can bring their bikes in to help power an inventive pedal powered light projection, or use a light tool to create their own luminous masterpiece.
“But the glowing artworks aren’t limited to Moseley Square. You’ll also be able to see incandescent jellyfish and other mysterious sea creatures gleaming beneath the Glenelg Jetty and glowing crabs crawling around the foreshore.”
Mayor Patterson said the event was the third installation in a series of ‘Random Art’ events run by the Holdfast Bay council.
“Our 2013 and 2014 events were really successful, but completely different to this one, focussing on quirky little temporary artworks in unexpected locations along our two Jetty Roads, at Glenelg and Brighton. This one is ‘Random’ in that it is a one-off – an unrepeatable, unforgettable experience that will have you seeing your familiar surroundings in an entirely new way.”
Describing the event as “fabulous, free, and family-friendly”, Mayor Patterson said it was worth keeping the kids up a little later if possible.
“It all happens after dark, from 8pm, so if you can allow the kids a bit of a late night, it’s likely to be a beautiful, colourful experience that will really inspire them and awaken their imaginations.”
Random Acts of Light’s participating artists include Illuminart’s Craig Laurendet, Jack Ladd, Penny Campton and Zero (Luke Shaw), plus independent artists Aurelia Carbone and Monica Prichard.
