ABOUT AURORA

AURORA is a free and public contemporary art exhibition centered in the rapidly developing Dallas Arts District. The project presents interactive new media artworks such as light, video, performance, and sound in exciting and unexpected public spaces. With experiential performances and exhibitions, AURORA is a platform for intersecting the local community with national and international artists in a way that is both compelling and personal.

For one unforgettable evening, the sunset signals the transformation of the 68-acres of downtown Dallas into one of the nation’s largest and most cutting-edge outdoor exhibitions. Attendees will see and become a part of a night full of art exhibitions, live music, entertainment, food trucks and pop-up bars. The hope is to liberate art from space and disciplinary confines, involving the general public and the international arts community in an inclusive and larger cultural conversation about artistic experience. 

Founders: Shane Pennington, Joshua King, Veletta Forsythe Lill.
