GLOW is the Museum of Art and History’s annual festival featuring the very best fire and digital artists in Santa Cruz County. It’s like a little bit of Burning Man came to Downtown Santa Cruz. Feel the rush of heat and excitement as you explore and get hands-on with incredible installations throughout the Museum, Abbott Square, and Cooper Street. Listen to the sounds, as fire-breathing instruments hurl music and flames toward the stars. Walk among six-foot-tall glowing statues. Join glowing experiments with local scientists. Take photos with the inflatable, illuminated organisms. Set the sky on fire with flaming torches. Explore Cooper Street as it fills with unbelievable fire dancing. Get hands-on in the electrified museum with interactive projections, glowing crafts, and LED sculptures. Ready to GLOW? Get your tickets to the hottest festival in Santa Cruz.
