After you’ve had your fill of looking at holiday lights on the exterior of buildings (see page 101), head inside Alwun House Foundation for an incandescent evening at Lighthouse 9, “an eclectic electric exhibit.” Like a child catching fireflies, curator Landy Headley carefully collected luminous works from more than 25 artists – from functionally fluorescent lamps to interactive LED installations to shimmering shrines and light boxes. The exhibition winds its way through Alwun House’s gallery and into its gardens like a meandering strand of holiday bulbs – follow the flares for a twinkle-tacular take on the Christmas lights tradition. The revelry ignites with an opening concert on December 2, with Lighthouse 9 on display Tuesday-Friday through January 6. 1204 E. Roosevelt St., Phoenix, 602-253-7887, alwunhouse.org
