AFTERGLOW Returns to Grounds For Sculpture

Grounds For Sculpture’s summer party AFTERGLOW will return on August 11 from 9 p.m. to midnight. This event is hosted by the Grounds For Sculpture Young Professionals, and presents a night of illumination, one-night-only experiences, and revelry, attracting hundreds of young professionals from the tristate area. Secure your ticket at www.afterglow2018.org.

AFTERGLOW attendees will experience the premiere of Social Sparkles – an interactive installation by multidisciplinary design studio Toer (Netherlands), reminiscent of fireflies on a summer night and filling the air with swarms of light that move overhead as guests walk below. Guests will also be among the first to view a new exhibition by artist James Carl, featuring works Carl has created using a remarkably elaborate and mathematical process of weaving lengths of venetian blinds. Guests will explore the grounds to see newly fabricated 26-foot steel sculpture, Dina Wind: Harp of David #1, as well as indoor and outdoor works by stone sculptor Masayuki Koorida.

The AFTERGLOW ticket ($100) includes exclusive after-dark access to the park, music spun by DJ Fatha Ramzee, performances, food, and beverages. Signature cocktails and tastings will be provided by Tattoo Tequila and Sourland Mountain Spirits, named Farm Distillery of the Year 2018 by American Distilling Institute. Craft beer will be provided by Brooklyn Brewery. Handcrafted local fare will include creations by Tower Dogs, Dump N Roll, and Cupcake Carnivale – named one of 2018’s 101 Best Food Trucks in America.
