Dazzle Crawl

E&S Dazzle Image #1.jpg

presented by Hancher, the Iowa City Downtown District, and Public Space One
with support from the City of Iowa City Public Art Advisory Committee

Area artists take over the windows of an array of downtown businesses in a celebration of radical viewpoints and untold stories in local history.

Inspired by Machine Dazzle’s work transforming the windows of Neiman Marcus with costumes from Taylor Mac’s A 24-Decade History of Popular Music (Abridged), which will be performed at Hancher on April 28.

Displays will be installed throughout April, culminating in a parade crawl on April 27, 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm. Select locations will have live performances and special one-night art pieces the night of the Dazzle Crawl.
