[Update 10/2/15: As a precaution to avoid expected bad weather, ILLUMINUS has been rescheduled from the original October 4 date to Saturday, October 10.]

ILLUMINUS, Boston’s nighttime contemporary art festival, presents innovative and imaginative art interventions that are site-specific and multi-sensory. Established in the SoWa Arts District, the festival takes over Lansdowne Street the weekend of October 3rd to kickoff HUBweek.

The exterior of Fenway’s “Green Monster” will be transformed into a 3-story percussion instrument, a multidimensional screen for projection, and a canvas for a diverse range of immersive art installations. ILLUMINUS will include performances by musicians working in collaboration with visual artists creating an evolving light and sound environment. Interactive and participatory projects will showcase designers working at the intersection of art and technology.

This is a free event; no ticket or registration is required.

If you’re an artist, designer, technologist or creator, we’re seeking innovative projects that cross disciplinary boundaries and engage a large audience. We accept submissions in any medium, but give special consideration to the following:

Light, sound or projection installations

Audio / visual performances

Interactive or participatory projects

Experiential art installations
