That's no mirage—it's Tortuga Gallery. But at the same time—it's not exactly Tortuga Gallery, its the Sonoran Desert as reimagined in reclaimed cardboard, under the otherworldly glow of black lights. This is The Electric Desert, an installation by local artist Andrew Fearnside. This one-night-only pop-up event runs from 5 to 8pm on Saturday, Aug. 11 in conjunction with a performance of ambiance-lending electronica from Unicorn Collective. See the desert as you never have before—dance or dream or just enjoy Fearnside's imaginative might—no matter how you take it in, tuck $5 into your pocket to support the artists bringing new electric landscapes to our city. This event is 21 and over.
