In just a few short weeks the annual Voyager 2018 New Year’s Eve celebration will kick off its five-year anniversary with another out-of-this-world exhibition. As 2017 comes to an end, there is a lot in the works to make this year’s five-year milestone an unforgettable experience. Collaborators from the Chicago community are coming together over a three week span in December to tirelessly marry technology and various art forms in transforming our secret space into a desert ecosystem.
Joining the Canvas and Chicago community collaborators are global talents performing live at Voyager 2018.
