Moon (Picnic) II

Moon (Picnic) II includes a large, spherical, illuminated moon, and a fog machine and the installation will be activated with performances throughout the night.

The public is encouraged to bring gently used blankets to activate and define the space and leave behind as a donation for a local charity, Main Street Project, that serves the needs of Winnipeg’s most vulnerable residents.

Attendees are encouraged to interact, perform and activate the installation throughout the evening, in-between scheduled programming. Moon (Picnic) was first commissions and exhibited by the Lake Country Art Gallery in (Lake Country, BC) and was activated throughout the summer into the fall by opera singers, pianists and spoken word poets.

Moon (Picnic) II is an Illuminate The Night project of Nuit Blanche Winnipeg funded by our Major Partner The Forks.

Gently used blankets for this installation will be donated to Main Street Project.
