Petaluma artists light up down town

Petaluma Artists Light Display
“Petaluminescence” art display downtown (Argus-Courier)

Petaluma artists have illuminated a downtown alleyway with public art they’ve dubbed “Petaluminescence.” They suspended 105 individually programed, solar-powered lights that mimic a bioluminescent glowworm found in New Zealand.

The $3,000 temporary installation is the brainchild of Petaluma artist Mike Hollibaugh and his wife Jessie Buickerood. LED lights with a micro-controller are programmed to show the artists’ interpretation of the glowworm’s “communication.”

You can experience the display at staircase that connects Kentucky Street to Helen Putnam Plaza.
