New Attraction: Future Projections’ Canopy/Calliope

Future Projections’ Canopy/Calliope

The sounds of an olde-tyme calliope bounce to carnival rhythms while showers of fish, flowers and fantastical creatures light up the ground below and the leafy canopy above. This new imaginative and immersive public art installation is presented by Future Projections.


A fantasia of imagery and sound, Canopy/Calliope is designed to delight and enchant the senses through “light painting” and photo collages. Future Projections is a live animation and projection art company founded by Minneapolis visual and performing artist Paul Herwig. Free with fair admission.

Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday, Aug. 28, 29 & 30, at dusk or approximately 9 p.m. for 1 hour (weather permitting)


Located just south of the Grandstand, east of the Grandstand Ramp

Please note: This public art installation contains flashing lights.
