Downtown Long Beach Art Walk Night
Phantom Guided by Cell Phone Launch
over 15 Galleries open to the public October 24 7-9pm
Guided by Cell Phone Tour creates an everyday Artwalk in Downtown Long Beach
sponsored by the Long Beach Redevelopment Agency
The streets of downtown Long Beach are enlivened with art, providing a virtual feast for the eyes, and starting October 24, one for the ears as well.
Under the auspices of Phantom Galleries LA, and working in tandem with local property owners, artists, and curators, numerous storefronts along Downtown Long Beach’s Pine Avenue, East 3rd Street, The Pike at Rainbow Harbor and Promenade are host to dozens of exciting art exhibitions and site-specific art installations.
Starting October 24, visitors will be able to participate in a self-guided tour of each of the various exhibition locations, guided by a published map that charts their course.
In addition to offering a vivacious exploration of an eclectic array of artists’ work, The Art Walk will be enhanced by a state-of-the-art audio component. At each of Phantom Galleries’ exhibition spaces, viewers will be able to hear about the art they are seeing. By using their cell phone to dial an assigned extension, participants can connect with an informative message from the exhibiting artist or curator. These audio recordings will soon be available online at PhantomGalleriesLA.com
While The Long Beach Art Walk and Art Audio Tour will be available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, it is recommended that visitors embark on their art journey after dusk, and preferably after enjoying a savory meal at one of Downtown Long Beach’s eateries. Who knew that art could serve as a creative digestive aid?
In November, Phantom Galleries will add new spaces on Pine Avenue to its roster. In late November, and throughout December and the Holiday Season each Phantom Galleries space will host light-based installations that will illuminate the wintry nights.
