Hi, you. It’s been too long! Welcome back. Tonight, as the sun sets, we’ll hit the rainbow lights, turn the music up, and open our doors—an invitation to take your imagination out to play. Fuel up with a cocktail and prepare to roam free through six spacious outdoor and indoor spaces. Be ready to bring fresh eyes to old favorites and uncover phenomenal new experiences.  

Please note: Food and drinks will be available to purchase in our Seaglass Restaurant and enjoy there or outdoors in Gallery 5 during After Dark.

Just for Tonight:

Electricus by Coup de Foudre
Encounter 10-foot arcs of lightning from Electricus, a giant Tesla coil created by Coup de Foudre. The ingenious Nikola Tesla dreamed of creating a means to supply power to the world without stringing wires across the globe, and his visionary experiments with electricity led to his creation of the Tesla coil. Stick around until sunset* to see a performance you won’t forget!
*Weather permitting

Deejay Saurus from Hip Hop for Change
Get ready to dance your way through the night as DJs from Hip Hop for Change set the vibe and keep the party moving all night!

Hailing from The Land of Oaks, Saurus has shared the stage with acts such as Hieroglyphics, Talib Kweli, Blackalicious, Zion-I,  and more.
