On October 15th, a very special art exhibition will be held at the Museum of African Design (MOAD) in Maboneng. The brainchild of two of my favourite people, Ross and Leigh-Anne Drakes, it's an exhibition by 20 of SA's best photographers, illustrators and artists, aptly called The Bright Night Project. I say "aptly" because the entire exhibition will be held in the dark, with only torchlight to guide you along your way. Load shedding jokes aside, it's a super cool idea. You'll get to explore one of the coolest design museums in the world, housing art specially created for the "blackout" event (hehe couldn't resist), for one night only, using torches that look like little suns. True Story. How rad is that? Exactly, pretty flippen rad. Do you know what's even more rad? Becoming a benefactor of the event by heading to their Indigogo fundraising page, securing your tickets to the event and supporting local art like a modern day Medici, if you will... Plus, it'll be the 2nd most fun thing you can do in the dark, if you know what I mean? Yeah you do... now go support local art and stuff. Go. Go make awesome.
