Each year, the LUX has hosted a free hands-on family artmaking event in August called Summerfest. In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the LUX looked for ways to allow families to appreciate the joy of art while making the experience safe and open to everyone.

The ‘Art Safari’ will feature three themed zones - Underwater, Cave, and Forest. Animal and environmental-themed sculptures will cover the surface of the parking lot while a kinetic wind sculpture is suspended above. Participants will be able to experience all three zones when they drive-through or walk-through.

There are more than twenty artists working on creating elements for ‘Art Safari.’ There will be a brief opening ceremony at 5 pm on Friday, August 7 during the LUX First Friday event. The LUX parking lot will be closed but free public parking is available in the lots near 47th and Baldwin and on side streets.
