Northern Spark Meets Lowertown - Don't Miss It!

If you happen to see flames coming from the Union Depot lawn at 2 a.m. on Sunday, don’t worry—it’s just art.
Experience the arts in a whole new light at Northern Spark 2013 this Saturday, June 8 in Lowertown. Starting at 8:58 p.m. and not ending until the early hours of the morning, visitors have the chance to see, explore, and participate in almost 80 projects throughout the night – one of which is a planned burn of a life-size house replica. This is truly a one-of-a-kind, rarely experienced overnight arts festival that enhances and highlights Lowertown’s vibrant art community.
From dusk until dawn, unique art pieces, art performances, and opportunities to create your own art will happen throughout Lowertown. Northern Spark’s  website offers a feature that allows you to follow a tour they have already created, or custom-make your own.
Still not sure if it’s for you? Watch this compilation video of the festival last year in Minneapolis.

Check out this list of five artprojects you shouldn’t miss, and be sure to come down to the Union Depot around 8:30 p.m. as Mayor Chris Coleman kicks the night off.
