Northern Lights supports artists in the creation and presentation of art in the public sphere, to imagine new interactions between audience, artwork and place and explore expanded possibilities for civic engagement.
Northern Lights strives to transform our sense of what’s possible in public space. Northern Spark is one night, but Northern Lights.mn shines throughout the year with projects such as Illuminate the Lock along the downtown Minneapolis waterfront, Art(ists) on the Verge, The Giant Sing-A-Long at the Minnesota State Fair, and permanent, interactive public art for Saint Paul’s Union Depot.
Northern Lights.mn is a collaborative, interactive media-oriented, arts organization from the Twin Cities for the world. We create platforms with and for artists, audiences, and partners to experiment with and experience innovative art in the public sphere.
