Light Into Night 2020
The Sculpture & Architecture Park will be closed to visitors at 1 pm on Saturday, September 12 until dawn on Sunday, September 13.
Tickets are no longer available for this event.
The show goes on! We have fully reimagined this year's Light Into Night for these times, and are thrilled to share a new format which allows guests to experience all that Art Omi has to offer.
Small groups will be stationed at private picnic zones, anchored by artworks in the Sculpture & Architecture Park, where they enjoy a picnic of fine food and drink from local vendors while socializing in the open air. Picnics are available for groups of 4-8 people, or just buy a ticket for you, a family member, or a friend, and we’ll find the perfect picnic spot to socially distance while still being part of the fun! With 120-acres to work with, we’ve got a spot for everyone!
In keeping with the spirit of Light Into Night, the afternoon will include surprising performances, and a special treat to send you on your way home.
If you're interested in attending, please contact Claire Pohl at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call (518) 392-4747.
Join us on Saturday mornings for safe exploration of the Sculpture & Architecture Park and art-making for kids ages 5-12. Weekly workshops host a maximum of twelve children, with a minimum of two teachers. This program will be held almost entirely outdoors with art-making occurring under the open-air Education Pavilions.
Open Figure Drawing for Adults gathers Monday and Wednesday evenings to sketch, draw, and render from a live model. Open to artists of all skill levels ages 16+, each two-hour sessions is self-guided and intended to provide time and space for members of our local community to share in the exploration of this traditional art practice. Please note that pre-registration is required.
What can we do when one page isn’t enough for a work of art? How do we define book art and what possibilities does this creative process present? This class will focus on creating one-of-a-kind artist books. Students will have a chance to create one or multiple books using collected mementos such as ticket stubs, hand-written notes, scraps of wrapping paper or old photographs as well as original works on paper. They will be introduced to simple bookbinding techniques and different book forms. We will consider the importance of page sequence and how pairing certain works together can alter how we experience the individual pieces. Students will repurpose old drawings and collages and use text, images, and patterns from vintage magazines to create new artworks, poems, and stories. Students will see how a seemingly random collection of papers can come together to tell a personal story. There are no limits as to what students can create! Materials will be provided, but students are also encouraged to collect materials they would like to include.
