Sweater Summer Light Art Party
A unforgettable evening of music and light art to celebrate the end of winter. Featuring the work and innovations of 10 local light artists, both floors of Mammal fill the senses. The main venue space combines the music of local artists Culture Culture, Breathers, DJ Yoon Nam, and main attraction Flamingo Shadow with custom light installations for each set. Upstairs features a gallery style presentation of the artists work including brain-interactive feedback loops, an old fashioned zoetrope, and an immersive sound and light hallway to list a few.
