Broward County Cultural Division and Mad Arts are excited to announce that the award-winning IGNITE Broward festival of art, light, and sound is doubling in size when it returns to South Florida this January. Showcasing 11 spectacular light-based installations by eight artists, IGNITE 2023 promises even more immersive and interactive art experiences than ever, bringing today’s most innovative talent and cutting-edge technology to audiences in Broward.
The third annual family-friendly festival will take place January 25-29, 2023. For five days and nights, visitors can experience immersive light and sound-based art created by top national and international artists and designers from France, Canada, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Large-scale 3D projection mapping and interactive light sculptures and installations will transform two locations in Fort Lauderdale and Dania Beach, FL. Admission is free and open to the public.
“Along with adding more exciting activations for 2023, visitors can expect to see incredible artworks presented on a much larger scale than in the last two years,” said Phil Dunlap, Director of Broward County Cultural Division. “We’ve also launched IGNITEBroward.com, a website where people can learn more about the festival by watching videos and exploring the artworks and artists behind them.”
