Invitation: Hero Design Open Studios July 11th

Invitation: Hero Design Open Studios July 11th

I’m having an Open Studio on Saturday, July 11th at 2pm. Want to come? RSVP by emailing alan@hero-design.com.

This is not the usual artist’s Open Studio where you come to admire someone else’s work.

This Open Studio is special because YOU WILL BE THE FEATURED ARTIST.

Yes, YOU!

YOUR MOMENT HAS ARRIVED.

Come be one of the first people to play with a giant, re-imagined version of your favorite toy from the 80s!

We’ve taken everything that was great about LITE BRITES, then made them even better. And 10x bigger.

The EverBright is a 4×8-food wall of 464 LED discs. Just like the original toy, you jump right in and start creating. Unlike the toy, there are no removable parts. Rotate a disc and it magically changes colors. Each disc contains millions of color possibilities. When you’re all done, you can erase it with the touch of a button. Each disc is also programmable, allowing us to run custom animations.

See the EverBright in person, learn how it was made, and make your first GIANT light sculpture at the Open Studio. There will be music, beer, expensive stinky cheese, and the last chance you may ever have to play with a giant re-imagined version of your favorite toy from the 80s.

RSVP by email: alan@hero-design.com.
