10 Inside Tips for Glow

Ready to Get Your Glow On?

Opening Ceremony

The Opening Ceremony for Glow 2010 begins at 7:00 pm on Saturday, but Coyotes will start howling earlier, at 6:15 pm. That’s when the 18th Street Arts Center & L.A. Commons’ Howling at the Sun, an epic procession and battle of drummers representing a Tongva/Gabrielino myth, will begin their walk to the Opening Ceremony. The procession moves down the Third St. Promenade to the Opening Ceremony itself, in front of the entrance to the Santa Monica Pier(intersection of Ocean and Colorado Boulevards). Plan to join the procession!

After a brief welcome from the Mayor of the City of Santa Monica and other dignitaries, Glow officially begins, and all sites go “live.” Lighting up the western wall of the Holiday Inn with five-story video projections is Intersection by artist-collaborators Freewaves & Super Expo.

A quartet of drummers, presented by Machine Project and playing a new work by L.A. composer Casey Anderson, head off north, south, east and west, and the Coyote/Sun procession descends to the beach to stage a battle to bring the Earth into balance with the Sun.
