Posted: 09/26/14

This weekend Midtown Detroit will light up with DLECTRICITY, presented by DTE Energy, where thousands are expected to walk, bike and explore an illuminated Woodward Corridor for the nighttime festival of art and light. The two-day free, outdoor Nuit Blanche festival features artists from around the world and Detroit whose works of art and light will span more than 1 mile from the Detroit Institute of Arts to the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, September 26–27, from 7 p.m. to midnight.

With M-1 RAIL construction taking place along Woodward Avenue throughout Midtown, make sure you give yourself some extra time and plan ahead. Be sure to reference our interactive construction map to stay informed on where work is occurring!

The Woodward Corridor will be transformed into an urban spectacle with art installations of light, video, performance, interactive engineering and other unexpected works of art. Venues hosting installations include: Detroit Institute of Arts, College for Creative Studies, Michigan Science Center, Detroit Historical Museum Plaza, Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit, Detroit Public Library, C.H. Wright Museum of African American History, Detroit Symphony Orchestra and more.

DLECTRICITY features artists from around the world, including Australia, Canada, Germany, Italy, Sweden, New York, Boston, Los Angeles and Detroit. The collection of acclaimed international and local artists will illuminate the city with 39 art and light installations.
