Downtown Milwaukee will welcome a new immersive public art installation to the Marcus Performing Arts Center Outdoor Grounds in July 2023 with the return of Rainbow Summer: HIGHLIGHT featuring Evanescent. Marcus Performing Arts Center (MPAC) and Milwaukee Downtown, BID #21 are partnering to bring the internationally touring installation “Evanescent” by Atelier Sisu to the MPAC Outdoor Grounds for one week only, July 18 – 22, along with five nights of free public performances. As part of Rainbow Summer: HIGHLIGHT featuring Evanescent, each night will feature a free public performance with live music from local and regional artists, vendor markets, food trucks, activities, and more. Performances are scheduled to begin at 7:00 pm nightly, with a special Family Night planned for Saturday, July 22 that will begin at 6:00 pm.

The massive installation invites playful, fun interaction, and is made from a color-reflecting dichroic film that reacts to sunlight. Led by Renzo B. Larriviere and Zara Pasfield, Atelier Sisu is an award-winning Sydney-based art practice, aiming to provide a unique spatial experience for its visitors.
