The event creator says
Join the global celebration of humanity’s Past/Present/Future in space with this immersive, educational, cinematic party experience!

ART X and the Michigan Science Center host Detroit's official entry into this worldwide event - also known as "Yuri's Night" in commemoration of the first spaceflight by Yuri Gagarin on April 12th, 1961.

Witness the two-story Saturn V rocket and Space Shuttle models rumble to life and launch via projection-mapped animation by New D Media Arts, synchronized to an experimental DJ score featuring live performances by Audra Kubat!

Be the first to see a developing short film about life on a new frontier. This hard sci-fi vision of survival in the first sustainable city on Mars is meticulously researched and shot on location in the deserts of the American West.
