Opening Celebration: 4-7 PM on December 22, 2018, at the base of Teton Village
GLOW takes place in Jackson Hole, Wyoming at the base of the world famous Jackson Hole Mountain Resort from January through February 2019. GLOW is an exhibit of original artworks and one night of multi-disciplinary festivities curated to provide an immersive participant experience.
Participating artists will create artworks inspired by the unique phenomena of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem and that employ light as a medium to attract people out into public spaces at night. Artists will collaborate with community groups to design one night of cultural experiences that complement the artworks and invite participants to learn about the calderas, geysers, peaks, and phosphorescent microbes of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem (GYE).
The Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem (GYE) is one of the last contiguous ecosystems left on the planet where megafauna, calderas, hot springs, and dramatic vistas abound. Our sense of wonder and our collective creativity are sparked by a desire to explore, understand, and interpret these phenomena.
Claudia Bueno is a Venezuelan artist internationally recognized for her use of technology as the media that animates her work, as well as the intricacy of her compositions and a spatial sense of immersion. Lights, motors, circuits, sound, wind, and video charge her pieces with the life and movement that characterizes her creative language. Detailed drawings, meticulous cutouts, and elaborate structures leave evidence of the intimate engagement between the artist and her work.
Walt Gerald is a multidisciplinary artist that draws heavily on inspiration from both the natural and supernatural world.
