Set to illuminate installations and urban spaces for the Auckland public, ART IN THE DARK 2014 is calling for artists all over the country to apply to be a part of its 2014 programme, transforming Western Park into a bustling hub under bright lights this 13-16 November.

Art in the Dark celebrates its fifth year and due to popular demand is extending to four nights with 100,000 visitors expected.

Since 2010, Art in the Dark has grown into a major public art event for Auckland. In 2013, over 55,000 visited Art in the Dark to explore, play with and marvel at 44 light installations throughout Ponsonby’s Western Park – with projections, performances and large scale immersive experiences from some of the most innovative creators the public will have a chance to see.

“This delightful event, which came out of nowhere three years ago, turns art viewing into an adventure sport in the otherwise under-used park.” - Janet Mcalister, NZ Herald, 17 Nov 2012
