The Santa Barbara County Arts Commission with the University of California Santa Barbara announces LightWorks: Isla Vista, a light-based arts festival taking place from May 19-21, 2016 in downtown Isla Vista. Nine select artist teams have been commissioned to create temporary sculptural installations designed to transform the central parks of downtown Isla Vista into illuminated spaces for art, performance, and evening engagement by the community. Artists who employ light-emitting technologies as a medium will exhibit their site-specific, free-standing installations from May 19-21 at 976 Embarcadero Del Mar, Isla Vista, CA.

A competition for public light-based artworks in downtown Isla Vista was held and a distinguished panel of jurors selected projects to be produced by the following award-winning artists: Madeline Berger, Jamie Birkett, Weslie Ching, Kym Cochran, Chad 'Fez' Gaetz, Udo Gyene, Mitchell Jakubka, John Lawrence, Danial Nord, Marco Pinter, Tai Rodrig, Jonathan Smith, Fernando Tapia, Denise Torres, Ethan Turpin, Scotty Slade Wagner, and Shannon Willis.

LightWorks: Isla Vista is part of a long-term community improvement effort led by a strategic group of partners and agencies, including the Santa Barbara County Arts Commission, Office of the 3rd Supervisorial District and County Sheriff, UC Santa Barbara Visual and Public Arts, Santa Barbara Foundation, Isla Vista Recreation and Parks District (IVRPD), Isla Vista Community Network (IVCN), UCSB Materials Research Laboratory, and the Santa Barbara Center for Art, Science and Technology (SBCAST).
