In Partnership, the Utah Arts Alliance & Element 11 are releasing a round of art grants
to support local artists for this year’s
ILLUMINATE Light Art + Creative Tech Fest
ILLUMINATE is seeking individuals and groups from the art and technology sectors to create and/or display installations using light as their medium. Think BIG! Projection Art, 3D Sculptures, Glowing Performance Art, Augmented Reality.
ILLUMINATE’s pivot plan for COVID includes areas/pods of activation around Downtown SLC. These areas include Library Square, McCarthey Plaza, The Gateway and the Sculpture Garden at the Arts Hub. Pieces will be up for two – three weeks so that the public can take a self-guided art tour while practicing physical distancing.
ILLUMINATE wants large-scale projects that can tolerate an outdoor setting. We also have an interest in unique projection and lighting pieces for this year’s event. If you have a great idea for a new installation or an existing project APPLY NOW! Let’s light up this city with physical and digital art!!!
Submissions Due: September 30, 2020 at Midnight
