DESCRIPTION: An incendiary and landmark exhibition of fire and light artistry at The Crucible’s industrial arts facility and a 100,000 sq ft outdoor Fire Arts Arena in West Oakland! A wealth of workshops, classes, lectures, exhibits and stimulating demonstrations culminating in one night of artist lectures and three nights of ground-breaking art and mind-blowing performances – different performances each night!
I’m planning to be there Friday night. If I can shoot some decent photos and video, I’ll post them here later. It costs $20 to get in Friday night, but you get a $5 discount if you are in costume.
