The ESSENCE OF THE ARTIST season was our largest to date! From the hilarious one-man play Buyer & Cellar, to Ann Toomey & Madeline Slettedahl in concert, to 46 extraordinary independent films, to Lauren Duffy’s Portraits of a Place, to Miles Mykkanen & Adam Rothenberg in Characters, to five enlightening Performance Infusions, to Art in the Park, and all culminating with Showstoppers starring Arica Jackson and Chelsea Starbuck Smith — our 2023 season was one for the books!

ART IN THE PARK is the centerpiece to Emberlight’s annual season. Artists create one-of-a-kind installations that become extensions of the gorgeous Miners Memorial Heritage Park. $3,000 in prizes are awarded, as determined by professional judges and audience voting.
“The people of the western Upper Peninsula have been with me since day one — from my very first performances at Theatre North and the Historic Ironwood Theatre, to Carnegie Hall and The Metropolitan Opera. I carry them in my heart every time I step on stage. The Emberlight Festival is my love letter to the people who call this region home, and to the art lovers who’ve always wanted to visit.” — Miles Mykkanen, Emberlight Artistic Director
