A Journey to the New Year
December 31st Canvas Annual Voyager
Voyager, produced by Canvas, is returning for its 5th annual New Year’s Eve celebration. The yearly NYE exhibition is inspired by NASA's twin Voyager probes which launched into space in the late 1970's. Each year, the Canvas production team takes over a venue and turns it into an otherworldly planet they imagine those probes have crash-landed on. This year, Canvas will transform a 30,000 square foot industrial space into a Dune-inspired desert planet filled with sand and exotic mirages for a psychedelic experience. You’re not going to want to miss this otherworldly New Year’s Eve experience. Get your tickets here!
