Downtown Spark Returns!

Downtown Spark is back again in 2022 and we’re filling Downtown streets with fun and whimsical art installations from around the world, alongside some of Edmonton’s best talent. This year, we’re also throwing two street parties featuring live music, beer gardens, extended patios, street performers and more. Wander the streets to see the works of art come to life and enjoy Downtown’s wonderful businesses along the way. #DTSpark

Meet The Artists

Michelle Hoogveld

Michelle Hoogveld is a Canadian contemporary painter and mural artist whose vibrant style is inspired by colour theory, connection, and matters of the heart. Michelle creates compositions of bold patterns and textile-like blockings of colour, with layers that weave and fold together as an intricate tapestry of who we are as people, the places we encounter and the one things that connects us all – love.

Designer Pete Hamilton and artist Luke Egan have produced hundreds of sculptures that incorporate innovative lighting, sensor-based interactive technology, kinetics and installation techniques.
