ART EXPERIENCES – HOMECOMING 2022
Outdoors and Indoors
Coordinated through the Padzieski Gallery - Sasha Corder, Gallery Coordinator

Prismatic Dearborn – an installation of light, Padzieski Gallery exhibit, Make and Take craft activity and
Paint Out in the Park – Dearborn’s Homecoming Festival Art Experiences
Homecoming 2022 will “light up Dearborn” with temporary light art installations displayed for
the entire weekend on the festival grounds at the Ford Community & Performing Arts Center and more
indoors at the Padzieski Art Gallery. Titled “Prismatic Dearborn,” the installations will primarily use light
as an art medium while exploring creative illumination, transforming space and surroundings.
Outdoor installations, placed throughout the festival grounds during the three day festival, will include
sculptures, interactive architecture, a neon forest and a 30 ft. long “glow in the dark” mural. Festival
goers are encouraged to find all eight outdoor installations, take a selfie photo and post it with the
hashtag #PRISMATICdearborn to win a PRISMATIC art prize.

Indoors at the Padzieski Gallery, open from noon to 7 p.m. all three festival days, the work of artist May
Hiddleston will be featured. Known as an interdisciplinary artist, her installation piece will be sure to
“dance off the walls “with her creative use of light, reflection, refraction and chromatic spectrum. In
addition to Hiddleston’s piece, the work of more than 20 southeastern Michigan regional artists will be
displayed and include sculpture, photography, painting, black light art and more. The Padzieski Gallery
exhibit remains through September 15. All gallery displayed work will be available for purchase and
listed online at padzieskigallery.org.
The Padzieski Gallery will also host a free Make and Take Craft activity from 1 p.m. – 3 p.m. all three
days of the festival. Open to all ages, this activity features prismatic themed inspiration and free supplies
for participants to create their own masterpieces.

Paint Out in the Park, a Homecoming favorite from past years, returns with the arrival of 50 artists
invited to paint “live” at various sites on the festival grounds over the weekend. An open call for artists
draws artists from across southeastern Michigan and beyond to vie for one of two awards – the Judges
Award and the People’s Choice Award. An exhibit site on the festival grounds will provide the public
with an opportunity to view the completed works and cast a vote for the People’s Choice Award after 4
p.m. on Sunday. Following Homecoming, selected Paint Out in the Park murals will be on exhibit at
Centennial Library’s Rotunda Gallery through September 8. These murals will also be available for sale.
