July 14 in Mozart Park, 1:00 PM - 6:00 PM
FIGMENT Chicago catalyzes and celebrates an abundance of creativity and passion, challenging artists and our communities to find new ways to create, share, think, and dream.
FIGMENT is a forum for the creation and display of participatory and interactive art by emerging artists across disciplines. FIGMENT began in July 2007 as a free, one-day participatory arts event on Governors Island in New York Harbor with over 2,600 participants. Since then, FIGMENT has grown significantly each year in number of projects, duration, participants, volunteers, fundraising capability, exhibitions, locations, overall level of commitment and participation, and public support.
FIGMENT Chicago 2016 is just around the corner... Wait, what happened to 2015? Scheduling conflicts and life changes, to keep it simple. Your core organizers were all in agreement: We want to live up to our strong history. We had a sizzling year in 2013 in Garfield Park (epic fire performance + 52 art projects). And the magical moments of 2014 in Jefferson Park burn bright in our memory (2 “no fuego” dragons + 31 additional art projects). Now, we are looking forward to an epic 2016 event.
