The DLECTRICITY Open Call is now over.
Thank you to all who applied!
Selected projects will be announced July 18.
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.
Thanks to the William Davidson Foundation for their renewed support of DLECTRICITY! We clearly could not produce this festival without the support of Detroit’s philanthropic community. You can learn more about the William Davidson Foundation here: http://williamdavidson.org/.

Here is a sneak peek at one of the artists who will have work on display at this year’s DLECTRICITY. We’re super pleased to support the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit – MOCAD and their efforts to re-install Martin Creed‘s exterior neon artwork Work No. 203: EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE ALRIGHT (2007) on their Woodward facade.

Thanks to DTE Energy for their generous support of DLECTRICITY. We couldn’t ask for a better partner to energize Detroit with public art and light! DTE is returning as a major sponsor for this year’s festival and joins a growing list of returning and new funders for DLECTRICITY, including The Kresge Foundation, The Knight Foundation, The National Endowment for the Arts, the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs, the Detroit Institute of Arts, Bluewater, Wayne State University, and Hyphen Advisory.
We encourage you to check out the development of DTE Energy’s new “Beacon Park” located on Cass Avenue and Grand River in Detroit – adjacent to DTE’s headquarters campus. Beacon Park will open to the public on Thursday, July 20, 2017, kicking off four days of grand opening events that include live music, a night market and family entertainment. You can check out lighting activations developed by former Dlectricity artist Mindfield that will illuminate the park after dark. Learn more here: https://goo.gl/y9QFH6.
