‘Illuminato’ Jan. 15 at Kalani
More than 30 artists are preparing for the second annual “Illuminato,” an outdoor art show on the theme of light, creative spark and illumination at Kalani in Kalapana.
This year’s show will be from 7-11 p.m. Saturday.
The event is presented by Kalani, with the support of the Hawaii State Foundation on Culture and the Arts, as well as Big Island Weekly.
The event will light up the Kalani campus with three zones featuring visual art, performers, light sculptures of all kinds, and a fire garden, complete with fire spinners.
The centerpiece of this year’s fire garden is DJ Sprocket’s piece, “Le Cercle de L’amour (Circle of Love),” a raised floating ring with a heart made of fire in the middle. Visitors will be able to walk under while listening to old French love songs.
Artist Michael Marlin, founder of Luma Theater, will have several imaginative installations at “Illuminato.”
As the director of a touring company that brought performances involving light to the stage, Marlin has many tricks up his sleeve.
Also featured is Pahoa artist Devin Mohr, with a piece called “Liquilarvae” lighting up the circular Kalani watsu pool. Mohr is best known for his transformation of people into fantastical creatures.
Craig Kohland and Sita Devi, of Shaman’s Dream, will transform a magnificent tree on campus into the Tree of Life with inspiring music and light.
In addition to the Illumination and Creative Spark Zones, an interactive zone will provide opportunity for engagement, with photographic light painting, live drawing and coloring stations, and the opportunity to help paint a human canvas.
“Illuminato” is a nonprofit event with all proceeds going to arts programming in Puna.
The suggested donation at the entrance is $5.
