On the eve of the August new moon, in challenge to Copernican logic, the center of the universe is relocating on Art Farm with the luminous performance of Romanian artist, Miruna Dragan, artist-in-residence at Art Farm. With 1000 chemical lights and intoxicating confidence, she will attempt to achieve a cosmic feat, never before imagined or experienced, of making light, rain. Its fireflies, wishing upon stars, NASA strength engineering and TinkerBell magic all rolled into one stellar event. Take a break from your daily life of standard linearity and thrill to an evening in the phosphorescence of Miruna’s celestial euphoria.

Conjugating with Miruna’s performance installation will be ambient stardust melodies of manipulated field recordings by Art Farm intern and king of noise, Kurt Peterson. Cynthia Hartling, Art Farm’s other current resident from New York, will open her studio, welcoming all visitors to see her paintings in progress.

It all starts at 7:30 (if you want to watch the lights rain into their final position) on Thursday, July 31 in Art Farm’s Levitation Performance Space. If it really rains, the event is postponed to Sunday, August 3—same time, same place.

As usual, nutritional replenishments of low sodium saltines and tap water are always available at the snack table.

Stuff your car full of friends, real and fake, and come on over—you’ll love what you’ll see
