Emberlight’s 2023 season kicks off on July 1 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 “Essence of the Artist.” 

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 the community. You’ll even have the chance to vote online for your favorites.

Join Emberlight’s artists and performers in the park on July 1 for an opening ceremony at noon, followed by festivities throughout the park until 3:00 pm. We also hope to see you at our annual awards show, Showstoppers: The Emberlight Grand Finale, to celebrate our Art in the Park prize winners!
