Ann Arbor Creative Light-Up Art Festival 'FoolMoon' Returns Reimagined To The City This Year
The annual FoolMoon public art and lighting event held in Ann Arbor had to pivot to an online experience last year, shortly after the start of the pandemic. This year, it is "re-imagined" with an outdoor component meant to support local businesses with the theme "Shine Your Light A2."
Lisa Barry talks with event executive director Jennifer Goulet about what is planned for this year's FoolMoon event.
It's time to dust off those luminaries, get busy making crazy costumes, light up your masks, dress up the dog, turn on the holiday lights, and make FoolMoon magic! This year's theme--Shine Your Light A2--is meant to affirm that the commUNITY shines brightest together, especially when times are tough.
In keeping with tradition, community artmaking began in March, with online + at home projects, workshops, and camps for kids of all ages. An array of light-filled, surprising + socially distanced art will unfold across downtown Ann Arbor and culminate on Friday, April 9. Make plans to FoolMoon Stroll + Roll to check out the art + support our local businesses along the way.
Join the FoolMoon CommUNITY Facebook group—a new virtual place to unite community creative superpowers, connect with fellow luminarians + illuminauts, make + share FoolMoon creations.
