SANTA ROSA, Calif. (November 10, 2022)—Luther Burbank Center for the Arts (LBC) announced it will transform its outdoor Sculpture Garden into a winter lights art walk to give locals a safe, festive place to go for an evening stroll, while enjoying the works of local artists. Free and open to the public, LBC’s NorthernLights will be open every evening from dusk to 9:30 pm, December 1 – January 1, 2023 for all to enjoy the magic of early winter nightfall.
LBC invites the community to the opening reception, December 1, 6:00 to 8:00 pm, at the Center’s campus, 50 Mark West Springs Road, in Santa Rosa. The reception will include live music, a visit from Clover Sonoma’s Clo the Cow, free egg nog (while supplies last), and concessions, such as hot chocolate, pretzels, and coffee.
“This is an exciting way to raise awareness of the Center’s Sculpture Garden, while bringing the community together,” said Rick Nowlin, President & CEO. “We look forward to NorthernLights becoming an annual tradition, transforming the exhibition, supporting artists, and creating a festive light display for all to enjoy.”
Featuring a sparkling illumination of the Sculpture Garden’s current exhibit, Thousand Ways: A Work in Progress, by artists David Duskin and Darling Gonzalez, NorthernLights is a fun, self-guided art walk that also includes dramatic lighted sculptures by student artists from Santa Rosa Junior College and whimsical scenes, bridges, and tunnels bedecked in twinkle lights throughout the sculpture garden.
For both the reception and the month-long art walk, ample free parking is available on campus. For the safety and comfort of all visitors, all pets need to be on a leash and remain on the path in the Sculpture Garden.
