On September 22 & 23, 2017, Midtown will be transformed by site-specific installations of light-based art including video, sculpture, performance, interactive design and more. The city landscape is your canvas–make buildings dance and turn the streets into a sea of light. From lasers to animation, robots to 3D video mapping, we challenge you to show Detroit, and the world, what you can do!

DLECTRICITY is Detroit’s nighttime festival of light-based art + technology. In 2012 and 2014, DLECTRICITY featured over 35 world-renowned and emerging artists whose cutting-edge works of art illuminated Midtown Detroit. Each time, tens of thousands of visitors engaged with these projects.
