Lux After Dark:
A New Territory

Welcome to A New Territory! Lux Art Institute is excited to present our annual gala event in a brand new hybrid form making the art, entertainments, and activities even more accessible for you. Taking place over two nights Lux will raise funds for our outstanding exhibitions, unparalleled education courses for all ages, and events that allow you to witness the creative process first hand.

Night One is our Drive-Thru Art Experience that allows you, your family, and friends to visit Lux for a night of spectacular art. Site-specific installations, performances, and sound art will be presented across Lux's campus with special exclusive opportunities with our VIP upgrades. 

Night Two is our Virtual Fundraiser event presented via Zoom. The event is free for all to attend as we will have special announcements and presentations, the reveal of our raffle winners from the previous evening, and our exciting live Paddle Raise fundraising event. 

Additionally, from October 14 through October 19 you can bud on items from our Lux After Dark Auction provided by our generous sponsors. More details about how to participate will be revealed soon!

We hope to see you at both nights as we raise funds and awareness for Lux Art Institute!
