Call Open for Light Art

LUSIO Lights Festival
Deadline: 4/15/2023

“Light art” is art in which light is the main medium of expression. Either the art produces light, or light is used to create the art piece through the manipulation of light, colors, and shadows.

The annual LUSIO festival features light artists incorporating their art directly into acres of glorious nature for thousands to explore. It will be staged at Mary Olson Farm, a PNW oasis of subsistence culture and history along the bustling Green River Road and is operated as a partnership between the White River Valley Museum and the City of Auburn. It is said to be King County’s best preserved subsistence farm and hosts a 100 year old barn, livestock, farmhouse, creek, and orchard.

The call for light art proposals will be open through April 15. The festival will run on August 18-19, 7-11 PM each evening. It’s free, and open to all ages.

All mediums of light art are encouraged to apply.
