Artist Lantern Installations
This year’s Arts-A-Glow festival will feature six local and regional lantern artists who are creating temporary, site-specific installations for Burien’s sixth annual celebration of light.
Annett Mateo (Seattle) is bringing beautiful illuminated dragon puppets that will be installed in the park and will be in the procession.
Shariana Mundi (White Center) will be creating "Flight of Fancy" with students with disAbilities in her Burien art workshops. Inspired by James Christensen's flying fish and flying ships they hope to bring mysterious and mythical creatures of the deep into our own Milky Way.
Laura Matheson & Robert Campbell (Seattle) Team Math Camp will be creating "Sounds Like Eye Candy", an interactive station where participants will be able to view multiple glowing and blinking lights that respond to ambient sound that they make with provided hand drums, voices, or body movement.
Josh Lind & Hernan Savastano (Seattle) "Night Balloons" will present strands of balloons stretching up to the sky, glowing, changing and moving.
Sarah Lovett (Seattle) The creator of amazing lantern puppets that have lead Glow processions in past years (remember the dog and owl?), Sarah is returning this year with "Rainbow Serpent Illuminated Puppet."
Mike Dodds & Kyle Miller (Normandy Park) "Simon" is inspired by the golden age of hand-held games. This interactive sculpture modeled after the Milton Bradley game "Simon" will have sound and light effects.
The Arts-A-Glow Festival, including the exhibition of illuminated sculpture and performance, is made possible with the support of the City of Burien and 4 Culture.
