Arts-a-Glow lit up the night
Annual celebration was bright and colorful
Saturday September 12th saw the Arts-A-Glow festival takeover downtown Burien. The event featured seven local and regional artists who created temporary, site-specific lantern installations ranging from salmon to seahorses to creations that defied description. All of the artists designed around the theme of Gathering!, which celebrates the beauty and magic of coming together. Many people in attendance made their own lanterns to join the fun. Live music was provided by the Yellow Hat Band and later in the evening by the Boys of Greenwood Glen.
A lantern procession began from the new Burien Town Square park around 8 p.m and was followed by a 3-D shadow puppet theater and more live music. The event was sponsored by the City of Burien, Burien Arts, B/ IAS, Denise Henrikson & Leslie Zenz, 4-Culture, Elliott Bay Brewing
