Voyager NYE is an annual celebration of what it means to be alive. Inspired by the story of the twin Voyager space probes sent out in the galaxy by NASA in the 70s, our annual New Years event imagines a foreign world come alive with the cumulative inspiration of all mankind. The Canvas Chicago team transforms a familiar venue into an otherworldly space, bringing together artists, makers and creative communities from across Chicago to hail in the new year.
For our 2015 installation, our team made over Chop Shop Chicago as a watery ice planet teaming with bioluminescent marine life, impossible geometry and monstrous, shifting glaciers. Teaming up with DRMBT, Stoptime 341, Galexy Design, Synergeo Domes, Era Galleries, Remix Project, Them Flavors, and a host of talented artists, set designers and dancers, the Voyager created a stunning environment to host Flamingosis, Esta. and Tokimonsta.
