Marcus Performing Arts Center and Milwaukee Downtown, BID #21 partner to bring an immersive, large-scale public art installation and five nights of free public performances
MILWAUKEE (May 17, 2023) – Downtown Milwaukee will welcome a new immersive public art installation to the Marcus Performing Arts Center Outdoor Grounds in July 2023 with the return of Rainbow Summer: HIGHLIGHT featuring Evanescent. Marcus Performing Arts Center (MPAC) and Milwaukee Downtown, BID #21 are partnering to bring the internationally touring installation “Evanescent” by Atelier Sisu to the MPAC Outdoor Grounds for one week only, July 18 – 22, along with five nights of free public performances.
Capitalizing on the success of “Lightfield” by HYBYCOZO, presented by Johnson Financial Group, that transformed Cathedral Square Park into an immersive public art installation, “Evanescent” by Atelier Sisu will feature larger-than-life “art-chitecture” (the intersection of art and architecture).
As part of Rainbow Summer: HIGHLIGHT featuring Evanescent, each night will feature a free public performance with live music from local and regional artists, vendor markets, food trucks, activities, and more. Performances are scheduled to begin at 7:00pm nightly, with a special Family Night planned for Saturday, July 22 that will begin at 6:00pm. Additional details on artists performing at Rainbow Summer: HIGHLIGHT featuring Evanescent will be released in the coming weeks.
