3.7.20 – SHADY PARK

For the second installment of Opalescent, our host is the legendary indoor/outdoor live music venue, Shady Park. Located in downtown Tempe and fully equipped with PK sound, we are set to have a brilliant audio experience surrounded by illuminated trees. The community vibes are strong here. We will expand on those connections further with Opalescent: Synthesis, providing an immersive event which Shady Park has never seen before.

9.14.19 – ALWUN HOUSE

Our host was Alwun House, the first gallery and independent nonprofit arts organization in downtown Phoenix. The Alwun is a unique visionary sustainable park which has enriched the creative urban experience in Phoenix since 1971.  We were honored to host the first Opalescent in this intimate garden atmosphere and create a transformative art experience to contribute to the growth of the Phoenix art scene.  A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Alwun House Foundation.

This is a collaborative space filled with artists of varied mediums, including you! We welcome your participation and encourage you to play in the space and feel creatively inspired. Bring your flow toys, your smile, and your open mind for maximum art absorption.

The purpose behind Opalescent is to encourage those participating to learn more about themselves and their passions through an appreciation of art and connection to others. This one night localist gathering will implement more purposeful activities to create a unique experience through the elements of ritual, community, art, and music. In transforming this space into an art wonderland, there will be a performance team to mesmerize, live painting to show the process, visual art for gazing, vendors for showcasing their creations, and the highest quality sounds for you to boogie, among many other treats. The flow will be from the front patio where the art begins, through the restaurant with some of the best ramen and sushi in the valley, out into the garden where there will be organic bass sounds into the night.

This is a local driven gathering for our community and strengthening of our scene. Please invite friends and the people you would like to share this artful night with, being mindful for how you and your crew approach this beautiful communal space. It is you that will make this the special event it is.

This will be a 21+ event with beverages so please bring your ID
