The Beacon

From Calgary, Canada, B!G ART installations are built for one purpose – to make more public art. They design, build, and promote interactive, and immersive, works of wonder so they can inspire the next. From fire-shooting portals to code-talking cubes from another dimension, they live for interactive and immersive art installations. Learn more about this artist HERE.

Local Lights

The Coeur d’Alene Downtown Association in partnership with the Coeur d’Alene Arts & Culture Alliance is presenting local artists to work in window displays of Downtown Coeur d’Alene businesses. Window displays will coincide with Winter Lights; an illuminated outdoor art experience for all ages that will take place every evening starting January 26 through February 4.
