Out Of The Box
Out of the Box is a six-week series of family-friendly performances, workshops and more taking place along Lake Michigan’s shore south of Discovery World at Lakeshore State Park. Over 75 local non-profits, entertainers, artists and businesses will enliven this summer with multifaceted experiences highlighting a range of national and international awareness events. At the heart of the event is the commissioned sculptural installation REbirth by artistic movement Cracking Art. REbirth features 22 five-foot-tall, brightly colored swallows, made of “regenerable” plastic.
With live music, guided tours, food trucks and lots of outdoor space for safe communal
engagement, there is plenty for the whole family to enjoy throughout the summer. Everyone is
welcome. Black Box Fund believes that it is important to engage with all its community, sharing in
the multifaceted ways in which we exist.
