Sponsored by Day-Glo Color Corp., the DayGloSho is a unique exhibit featuring artwork created by more than 40 regional and national artists using Day-Glo fluorescent pigments. The annual art exhibit is shown in black light for a mesmerizing, magical gallery experience like no other.

Featuring the theme “The Magic of Day-Glo,” this year’s 8th annual DayGloSho exhibit—which is being held virtually due to the Covid-19 pandemic—opened September 4 and will run through September 27. It includes a galactic art piece by Day-Glo associate and artist, Clare Kolat, titled “She Blinded Me with Stardust.”

For years, the exhibit has served as a great educational opportunity to teach children about light, chemistry and the connection science has to art. In 2018, a group of fourth-grade students from the Intergenerational School in Collinwood, Ohio, visited the arts center for a field trip, during which they got to test out pigments, experience the exhibit and hear a fascinating presentation by DayGlo scientist, John Waters. Waters brought props to imitate light waves, passed out pigment "rocks" for the kids to crush, and made the science come alive for the students. He also talked about science as a career and let the kids ask questions. During the visit, one excited boy told exclaimed, "This is the best day of my life!"


True to this year’s theme, the first DayGloSho exhibit was organized in 2012 after local artist John Saile discovered the magic of Day-Glo fluorescent pigments. In support of Saile’s effort to curate a unique gallery where artists across Cleveland, Ohio, and beyond could harness their creativity to create experimental artwork, Day-Glo donated 12 gallons of paint for the initial launch of this project and has since continued to be its leading sponsor each year.

In 2015, the exhibit moved to its current home at Waterloo Arts, a non-profit that aims to enrich Cleveland’s Waterloo Arts District neighborhood by creating a stimulating arts environment for all ages through exhibits, performances, special events and educational programs.
