The Land of Light is a youth-led event designed to engage our community through interactive art installations, lighting effects, visual film graphics, and displays of science and technology. All of these elements will come together in a way that inspires "play."
The unique Earth Day event will transform the entire Santa Paula Art Museum campus including the Museum's main exhibition building, the Cole Creativity Center (the Museum's future art education building), and the outdoor area between the two. Youth guides will lead visitors through different indoor and outdoor spaces representing earth, water, science, art, and technology. Light and video projects will illuminate the other creations on display including 3D printed sculptures, art cars, robotics, a "pyropainted" carousel, and more. Each space will feature "craft stations" where guests will be able to interact with and add to the various artworks and displays. Visitors will also enjoy a live DJ and a local no-host food truck.
Admission is free for everyone.
This is an open house style event. Come and go as you please between 5 p.m. and 9 p.m. A special lighting ceremony will take place at 7:30 p.m.
