Got Light was honored to light up 'Party on the Rock,' a gala celebration for supporters of the @Large Ai Weiwei on Alcatraz exhibit, along with Brightfire Events.

Named "one of this year’s most important art exhibits internationally" by SFLuxe, it provides Chinese artist Ai Weiwei’s sculpture, sound, and mixed-media installations in four previously restricted locations in the former prison.

Alcatraz and history go hand in hand. Once home to some of America's most notorious criminals, the federal penitentiary that operated here from 1934 to 1963 brought a dark mystique to the Rock. The presence of infamous inmates like Al "Scarface" Capone, and the "Birdman" Robert Stroud helped to establish the island's notoriety. To this day, Alcatraz is best known as one of the world's most legendary prisons.

Alcatraz Island is frequently the site of celebratory, large-scale special events such as corporate receptions, parties, dinners, and premiers. There's even dancing!
