"Night Light" is a community art installation for peace that invites everyone on Thursday, September 20 at 9 pm, to bring a light and join your community on the coastline between our two picturesque Lighthouses to shine a light and show other communities around the world OUR light.
“Night-Light” a Community Art Installation Project for Peace happened on Thursday, September 21st 2006 in Santa Cruz, CA. In conjunction with the United Nations International Peace Day the Santa Cruz Institute of Contemporary Arts along with hundreds of volunteers placed five hundred 15,00,000 candle power spotlights every 30 feet along a three mile stretch of coast known as West Cliff Drive. The lights were turned on at 9pm pointing towards the sky and remained on until each lamp burned out at 9.40pm. Almost 20,000 people from this and other communities came out to participate in this display of solidarity about the very important issue of peace.
“Night-Light” will be an annual event that will grow throughout the country and through light show the world our passion about the ongoing need for peace.
In order to raise money for this ongoing event we are selling limited edition posters of “Night-Light” 2006 as well as the signed and numbered lights that lit West Cliff Drive on September 21st. Each poster sells for $25 and each light sells for $80.
All contributions to the annual Night-Light project can be made payable to the SCICA c/o Night-Light, 1040 River Street, Santa Cruz, CA 95060
