Being part of ypsiGLOW means you’ll be part of an array of socially distanced art and light installations all around Ypsilanti. You’ll have the opportunity to suggest where you want the installation to be placed for the community to see. YpsiGLOW viewers will also be able to view the lights in a socially distanced manner. Art will be visible either by car, walking, bike, or online to keep our community safe.
Additionally, this year’s ypsiGLOW will feature a virtual Facebook event and GLOW TV. GLOW TV will showcase video creations by Ypsilanti youth and local artists. There will also be the GLOW Stroll + Roll. GLOW Stroll + Roll invites everyone to dress up, mask up, light luminaries, and come visit downtown Ypsilanti. There, you can check out the dazzling creations and support some of the great local businesses.
This call for artists is open to all artistic disciplines. You’ll be able to showcase your art, whether it be dance, music, theater, literary, lighting, and more, for the community to see. Proposals submitted should align with this year’s theme and should highlight the power of creativity. Remember, this event is about commUNITY.
