Every year Bottleneck Gallery in Brooklyn hosts an art in the dark event featuring pieces that use glow in the dark inks and pigments. The exhibit always draw a nice blind crowd happy to bump into each other in the dark in the name of art appreciation and then go eat at Blinde Kuh, that does the very dark dark thing with fine cuisine. Just kidding. The gallery has special black lights installed on a timer that “go dark” every few minutes. The exhibit, appropriately titled When the Lights Go Out opens Saturday, March 22nd and runs until April 9th.
The previews here include the normal and glow in the dark inks for each piece. There are well over 60 pieces in the show.
