LAST YEARS LUSIO
“How to experience Lusio?”
Lusio is meant to be playfully experienced in 2-3 hours and is FREE family-friendly, open to all, and for one night only.
Be prepared to wander and explore the corners of the park to find the art living under trees and in the gardens. Lusio is fully intereactive, family friendly, community driven event so participation is key!
Show up around 7:30 to grab a spot on the lawn in front of the amphitheater for optimal relaxation. Got a crazy glowing outfit to wear? BRING IT! Dress in your most glowing, LED, light up attire to get into the spirit and contribute to the whole atmosphere! Wrap your dog in L-wire and let your kids wear all the sticks they can handle. Bring your LED hulu hoops to show off those hoopin skills.
Please help us leave the park as pristine as we found it by picking all all trash, using the proper recycling bins and not smoking on park property.
Please no fires, fire spinning, rouge art, vending, sound/speakers. Pack it in, pack it out!
NO RENEGADE ART PLEASE!!
These artists worked super hard to be part of Lusio and are dedicating a lot of time and money to participate. A years worth of curation and planning go into every detail of Lusio, and expecially where each peice is placed.
Please respect the artists and leave those awesome rogue installations at home. Don’t worry, you can apply for next years Lusio 🙂
CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS
