Multiple light installations sourced from local artists and art groups will be placed throughout Volunteer Park to explore while ambient music orchestrates the entire journey....
How to best experience Lusio Imagine being in Volunteer Park as the sun is beginning to set on one of those delicious Seattle summer evenings. You bring a nice blanket to lay on and find a nice, soft place in the grass front of the amphitheater. Perhaps you bring your kids or partner and some snacks while you relax in the warm evening sun. At 8:30pm when the sun has started to makes it way across the Olympics to set, beautiful and slow sounds begin to emerge from the stage. These sounds made by a single musician will be signalling the light installations that are placed throughout the park to "awaken". Suddenly, you find yourself surround by beautiful sounds and beautiful light installations to explore. You gather up your loved ones and go to explore works of light art sourced by local artists placed throughout Volunteer Park. You're suddenly pretty glad you happen to bring those extra glow stick bracelets in your bag so you take them out to join in on the fun. An hour or so passes of playful exploration so perhaps you're ready to relax some more so you make your way back down to the amphitheater where the sound is still orchestrating the light. Around 10:30PM the music begins to wind down which signals the light that it's time to "go to sleep". The beautiful light installations fall asleep one by one and the sound slowly cease and will be the last to slumber, leaving you in a state of wonder, peace, and inspiration as the journey draws to a close. You pack up your blanket and snacks, wrap you arm around a loved one, and head home happily relaxed and delighted after an evening of playing in light and sound.
