Driven by a desire to be more involved with our community, we set out to find unique ways to engage in our local art scene. What better way than to throw an event full of the zaniest art and neon pieces imaginable? From a Dalí-inspired neon elephant named Salvador to a giant Sea Monster with pillow-soft teeth, everyone at Ion Art and Art Seen Alliance bands together once a year to create an event so spectacular it’s the only one of it’s kind.

The Surreal event is an ephemeral neon wonderland. It’s a one-night only soirée featuring neon surrealism, interactive art sculptures, costumes, music, dancing, tarot reading, face painting, food, cocktails, limitless photo ops, and more.
