(Fort McMurray, AB – October 2, 2017) – You won’t need a flashlight in downtown Fort McMurray this month. igNIGHT will light up Jubilee Plaza and McMurray Experience from Oct. 20 to 29.

This temporary public art exhibition will showcase four light-based installations by local artists and celebrate Canadian culture in recognition of Canada 150.  

“This year’s igNIGHT artists have really come up with innovative ways to re-imagine these public spaces and create a unique experience for the community,” said Community Strategies Coordinator, Jessica Barry. “In addition to showcasing local public art, we are also seeking performance artists to perform during the exhibition.” 

Interested performers have until Oct. 11 to apply.
