Day-Glo Show, Walk All Over Waterloo 1.6 5–10PM

Douglas Max Utter "Day-Glo Sunbather" (2016) 20" x 24"
Mark your calendars, invite your friends and family, and light up the new year with a night out at the black light opening of this year's DayGlo Show. Everyone will enjoy seeing what over 40 regional artists have done with the fascinating medium of fluorescent paint. It's the most unique gallery exhibit you will visit all year! The show opens during the Waterloo Arts District's monthly Walk All Over Waterloo so there will be plenty to do and see in the other galleries, shops and bars up and down Waterloo. DayGlo Color Corp has generously donated the paint for this exhibit.
