ILLUMINATE Utah’s Light Art and Creative Technology Festival
Coming to Salt Lake City in November 2020
Activities and Art presented November 5 – 29
Utah Arts Alliance announces the fourth annual ILLUMINATE: Utah’s Light Art and Creative Tech Fest. ILLUMINATE is a celebration of innovation and imagination for the community, art lovers, and families. Artists working with technology and using light as their medium will use the city as their canvas and create projection-mapped artwork, light art displays and exhibits for the community to experience throughout the month.
To accommodate COVID safety, ILLUMINATE moves away from the traditional festival model to present artworks to be enjoyed throughout the month on a self-guided tour without the concerns of a mass gathering. From large-scale projections to intimate performances to the introduction of Lumen Land, ILLUMINATE invites the community to experience art together, yet separate, as we explore the healing power of art.
During a time when the industry is dark, the Utah Arts Alliance is proud to use our resources to support Utah artists and Audio-Visual technicians for ILLUMINATE. We strive to keep pushing new levels of innovation and creativity in Utah.
ILLUMINATE 2020 features:
Large Scale Projection Mapping at City County Building, The Gateway and McCarthey Plaza
Student-designed projection display at Spy Hop’s new home
Electric Bike Ride
Luminosity Curiosity Showcase
Virtual STEAM Lab
The festival features installations and performances by more than 50 artists in addition to educational and inspirational online content from our partners: Utah Film Center, Spy Hop, Discovery Gateway, Make Salt Lake, Clark Planetarium, Dreamscapes and STEAMpunk Academy.
