The event is free and open to all ages.
Sponsored by Inasmuch Foundation, Love’s Travel Stops, Heartland, Scissortail Park and LINGO Construction. the outdoor GLOW exhibits feature: Oscillation and Passage – two large, interactive works that currently light up the environs near the 50-story Devon Tower and the expansive, state-of-the-art Oklahoma City Convention Center, which opened in 2021.
Oscillation, created by The Urban Conga, consists of crystal-like forms that encourage interaction. Movement through the installation evokes changing sounds and colors from the scattered “gems,” generating music and light changes based on visitors’ proximity to the jewel-like structures.
Passage, created by Serge Maheu, consists of 20 coiled circles of light that form an open “tunnel” with an interactive sound system. that “explores the emotional connections of light and sound.” Walking through the coiled light tunnel activates changing color-glow, patterns and sounds, providing a playful sensory experience for guests of all ages.
