Presented by Artistry, the City of Bloomington, and Nothern Lights.mnIlluminate South Loop was a free, three-day event that featured brilliantly illuminated, participatory art installations and performances. Located just off the METRO Blue Line light rail Bloomington Central Station Park, this Creative Placemaking initiative focused on leveraging the power of arts, culture, and creativity to engage the community, with an added focus on adding a unique addition to the lineup of activities leading up to Super Bowl LII.

The outdoor evening experience also included bonfires, warm drinks, and regional fare from Chef Paul Lynch of Urbana Craeft Kitchen.
