Not ones to let a little thing like a global pandemic get in the way of an art show, the curators of High Beams will kick off their third drive-through art exhibition on Saturday, April 17, in the parking lot and adjacent alleyway east of the Bendix Building.
Playfully titled “Laser Snake,” the COVID-safe one night only exhibition will prove to be the most exuberant and mystical yet, with live performances from art clowns, wheat threshing, painters erasing musicians from view, and at least three pyramids, each with a different meaning and aesthetic. The title was inspired by the first High Beams show, when a queue of 150 cars formed a “laser snake” as it meandered through a rooftop parking lot. CLICK HERE to watch the video.
