Hydro-Illuminata: Playing with Fire
Saturday, October 1, 2016 at 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Torches create pinpoints of light in the darkness. Dancers weave in spiraling lines down the banks of the Mississippi. Flaming boats trail glowing lines of molten light across the river. The water itself appears transformed into liquid fire. These dramatic images are the culmination of Hydro-Illuminata, a three-month long community conversation about water sustainability.
Join local sculptor James Brenner and the Mississippi Watershed Management Organization for a public water and fire spectacle on the banks of the Mississippi as small, fire-filled boats are cast adrift on the water, giving tangible form to a community conversation about water sustainability
Spectacular free public event that includes an iron pour performance, music, choreography and projections.
Participants and partners include artist James Brenner, Mississippi Watershed Management Organization, Holland Neighborhood Improvement Association, Walker Art Center, Homewood Studios, Minnesota Waldorf School, City of Lakes Waldorf School, Rhythm of the Saints and members of the Macalester College Pipe Band.
Parking is not permitted in the MWMO/Tony Jaros Rivergarden lot. Street parking is available on either side of the Mississippi River. The Siwek Lumber & Millwork overflow lot is available for guests; additional parking zones will be posted on the day of the event.
