Robolights

Robolights Official site for the ROBOLIGHTS art & light display created by artist Kenny Irwin. Began in 1986.

TEXT 1-760-774-0318 to make an appointment to see art inside year round. Visit www.KennyIrwinArtist.com for more details on my artwork. At ROBOLIGHTS, You experience a why not world in a why world. Situated in Palm Springs, it may be known is a unique light display festooned with more lights than you might find anywhere else but it's more than just than a light display, it's also the art, making it an art & light display. ROBOLIGHTS itself is an international legend through numerous media publications that include the Conan O'Brien show in 2010, BBC travel Channel, Shipping Wars, TLC, HGTV etc. What happens when you combine Santa Claus & Robots? A massive whimsical futuristic winter wonderland set in the North pole through a parallel universe. Built by artist Kenny Irwin. Started in 1986 at age 12, I wanted to create a physical wonderland of lights combined with fantasy of imaginary other worldly north pole themes run by robots. The display features a life time's worth of monumental and variety complex art that spanning nearly thirty five years from the time I was very little where I made my first large outdoor found art robot at the age of nine. Ofcorse I have been creating art in one form or another since I was practically born. Though ROBOLIGHTS is an extraordinary experience for people of all ages and back grounds to inspire imagination and creativity in people as well respect for the limited resources of our world. When you step into ROBOLIGHTS, You are taken into a parallel universe walking through immensely long zig zagging pathways over 4 acres that lead up to hundreds of giant robots & huge displays everywhere, rocket sleds and art created out literally close to an apx thousand tons of donated junk that has come from family, neighbors, friends etc that would have otherwise ended up in a land fill but has been transformed into art everyone can enjoy. ROBOLIGHTS is OPEN to the public from November 22nd 2017 to January 8th 2018 4:00-9:30PM every single day, including holidays and rainy days.
