Visit Glow 2010 from Your California Timeshare

Have you ever heard of "white nights?" It's a global cultural event that can be seen in such cities as Paris, Rome, Toronto and Madrid... and now, Santa Monica, California. Rent a southern California timeshare and head to "Glow 2010" - September 25th on the Santa Monica beach.

Glow is an all-night cultural art experience of original commissions by artists that "re-imagine Santa Monica Beach as a playground for thoughtful and participatory artworks." The free dusk-to-dawn event features international, national and local artists.

Glow debuted as one of the biggest art events in the US in 2008, with over 200,000 attendees. And now this biennial celebration returns this fall with exciting new artwork commissioned specifically for one of California’s great public spaces - Santa Monica’s beach.

Glow 2010 commissioned 20 original artworks specifically for this one-night event. Celebrated artists include Anne Bray (Los Angeles), Céleste Boursier-Mougenot (Séte, France), Rafael Lozano-Hemmer (Montreal, Canada), Yoshua Okón (Mexico City) and Steve Roden (Los Angeles). In addition, over 100 artists responded to an open-call for proposals to Los Angeles County artists for Glow 2010, from which eleven were picked for funding by a jury of Los Angeles arts professionals.

Glow projects "invite active audience engagement and exploration," and are constantly surprising in their unexpected placement in spaces and times not normally reserved for fine art - such as in the sand, along the surf, and under the Santa Monica Pier. At this year’s event Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, whose technology-driven projects (such as creating pulsing light patterns by harnessing heartbeats of audience members) have been displayed around the world, will be presenting his first California creation, titled “Sandbox.”

Glow is the only all-night art event in the United States that emphasizes the commissioning of original artwork, and is a production of the City of Santa Monica and the Santa Monica Arts Foundation. Leave it to southern California to give you yet another great reason for a timeshare rental vacation - California style!
