Every year dozens of artists come together to make Brite Winter happen, including professional artists, hobbyists, partner artists from groups like the Cleveland Museum of Art and Ingenuity Cleveland . . . and, of course, YOU!
Our art crew works together to bring to life the theme for the celebration of our 10th year — Brite 10: Onward! Large-scale immersive environments across the festival site will hearken back to the golden age of travel, taking visitors across time and space by land, sea and air.
By Land: Train cars rumble past a landscape of pyramids and psychedelic camels, keeping time to eclectic beats from across the world! Take tea in a desert dweller’s tent, visit a vibrant market of Artisans peddling wares, encounter a fellow traveler needing to be saved – visit each train car to uncover clues! Artists and partners include Spontaneously Combustible Games, Ultimate Team Up, Bex Moss, Tessa LeBaron, Paige Knoefel, Leslie Sern, Eugene Zbarashewski, Jacci Hammer, Michael Harms, and Rafael A Valdivieso Troya.
With music and performance by Museus, Unplanned Crew, Mom’s Bassment, SelfSpace and Tribe Ostara.
By Sea: Sails billow above the waves. Below, treasure glimmers and creatures glide to dank tunes within the seaweed-covered chasms of a downed ship, nestled by a giant steampunk octopus. Artists and partners include Andrew Kaletta, the Cleveland Museum of Art, Bex Moss, Sharon Mackey, and Drink Local Drink Tap.
With music by DJ Pish Tosh, Minh Vannuyen, Oceans, Flowmar, Jay Allen and Theo.
The Hangar: Groovin’ at 30,000 feet, By Air is the hippest way to travel! A bar with funky beats keeps you cruisin’ at high altitude, and modern jet setters can even expect an in-flight roller rink! Artists and partners include Memorobelia Productions, Rollin’ Buckeyez, Minh Vannuyen, Meganne Stepka, Skuda Productions, Dan Cook and Melissa Moon.
With music and performance by DJ Himiko Gogo, Beat Freak, Glacial 23 and Shanty Circus.

“Brite Winter is a big bridge that connects us all. No matter what your art discipline, the message is clear: below zero temperatures will not stop you from having fun outdoors.”
