Emberlight’s 2024 season kicks off on June 29 with the opening of Art in the Park, a series of original outdoor artworks by artists from across the upper Midwest.  At turns funny, beautiful, and thought provoking, these artworks perfectly capture this season’s theme of “Torch Songs & Rhapsodies” — a celebration of big emotions and the ethereal magic of the arts.

Visitors will discover the large art creations nestled among the beauty of Miners Memorial Heritage Park, along the Aurora Loop. The multi-media works are part of Emberlight’s mission to make art available and accessible to our entire community. You’ll even have the chance to vote online for your favorites (and the winning artist receives $1,000!)

Join Emberlight’s artists and performers in the park on June 29 for an opening ceremony at 12pm, followed by festivities throughout the park until 3pm. We also hope to see you at our annual awards show, THE EMBYS, to celebrate our Art in the Park prize winners!

Art in the Park is also home to Emberlight’s Performance Infusions series.  The Infusions are on Saturdays at 1pm and are FREE to attend.  Our 2024 Infusions include: Bizhiki Company (June 29), Logging, Legends and Lore (July 6), Whittling in the Woods (July 13), and Fantastic Folk Tunes (July 27).
