Natural Awakenings Dallas -Fort Worth Metroplex Edition


Aurora 2015 Ignites the Night

Oct 02, 2015 10:52AM

For one night, 19 city blocks in downtown Dallas will be transformed on October 16 into an open-air urban playground of new media art: light, video, sound, and performance. Visitors will experience their everyday urban environment converted into an interactive site for some of the world’s most innovative contemporary art. This is Aurora 2015.

Powered by Reliant, the expansive outdoor biannual light-based art event, with the theme All Together Now, references the concept of synesthesia: the joining together of senses. Aurora Festival Lights and DancingAurora co-creators Shane Pennington and Joshua King and the nonprofit AT&T Performing Arts Center have formed a partnership to produce and present the bi-annual event, which in 2013 attracted 30,000 people.

Many local organizations and groups will be participating in the Aurora experience, including the grassroots awareness and funding arts collective Art Conspiracy, which will create a camera projection into a pyramid, and Bike Friendly Cedars, which will organize a mass-lighted bike ride through the arts district.

Admission is free. For more information, visit
