DLECTRICITY™ will again bring thousands of people into Midtown Detroit September 22 & 23, 2017!
The Detroit Institute of Arts Farnsworth Entrance
During DLECTRICITY™ 2017, the Wire-car Auto Workers Association of Detroit (WAWAD) embarks on a collective Woodward Wire-Car Light Cruise that is both performative and celebratory of light, sound, and the diverse global culture localized in Detroit. WAWAD members park and retrieve their wire-cars from the Headquarters Parking Lot structure, located outside the Detroit Institute of Arts Farnsworth entrance, combinging the frequencies of light and sound, and function as a charging station and an interactive exhibit space. The Headquarters Parking Lot will host a DJ whose music will echo throughout the collective light cruise.
Throughout the summer, WAWAD will host a series of workshops for new and old members to electrify their wire-cars, using accessible means like electroluminescent wire, battery packs, and LED lights, and with the help of experienced WAWAD mechanics.
