Dusklit is the East Coast’s one night interactive art bazaar, featuring 35 installations, performances and site-specific artworks by 65 artists from all over the country. Equal parts adult summer camp, pop-up art festival, and carnival side show, DUSKLIT draws on the magic of twilight as these outdoor installations transform with the changing light of the setting sun.
Dusklit was founded in 2016 by contemporary artists Olivia Baldwin and Cody Rounds as part of the Warwick Summer Arts Festival.
In its second year, DUSKLIT transformed the Seligmann Homestead in Sugar Loaf, NY, into a landscape of multisensory environments. The 35 curated installations included interactive musical performances, communal artworks, a ceremonial tea tent, a ride-on kinetic sculpture, and many other experiential art forms. After sunset, DUSKLIT morphed into a meadow bonfire dance party led by two artistic regional DJs, Öberon and Jonathan StrÆnge.
This event was in part funded by the 2017 Community Arts Grant awarded by the OrangeCounty NY Arts Council.
