About this event
A special part of the East End Arts Lights ‘n Giggles art exhibition (April 1 – May 7, 2022), this event turns off all the overhead lights to see neon artwork in its glowing glory. Clayton will give a discussion about his work and the exhibition pieces, followed by live music from the EEA Rock Band. If you have seen neon on the East End, both artistic and commercial, chances are high it was crafted by Clayton. His Lights ‘n Giggles sculptures are crafted from metal, glass, wood, and his signature effects using light. He incorporates poetry, found and upcycled objects, and even elements from nature. Involving the audience in the experience with the art is important to Clayton, so viewers are surprised with interactive pieces sprinkled throughout, such as using a crank to light up neon in order to complete the piece.
