IMMERSE by the Creative City Project.


On November 21st, the downtown street of Orange Avenue was shut down from just north of Pine Street, down towards South Street.  IMMERSE is an invitation to unexpected creative encounters in the heart of Downtown Orlando. You’ll find yourself truly immersed in art, performance, and interactive installations.

With collaborators like Cirque du Soleil, Orlando Philharmonic, Orlando Ballet, and the Central Florida Community Arts Orchestra, you won’t want to miss this evening which is unlike any other.
In 2016, the Creative City Project brought nearly 1,000 performers to the streets and public spaces of Downtown Orlando for more than 20,000 patrons. IMMERSE 2017 continued the tradition of growth and excitement by bringing you more large scale WOW moments and unexpected, intimate creative encounters.

From Classical to Hip-Hop music, murals, dance, acrobatics, interactive installations, artists from Orlando, around the country, and the around the world converge on Downtown Orlando for one of the largest showcases of innovation and creativity in the performing and installation arts in the country.

I hosted one of the Orlando Urban Sketch Workshops during this incredible event.   With so much going on at the same time it was difficult to decide on a single subject to sketch.  I offered personalized instruction to each Urban Sketcher and then dashed off to do a quick sketch myself.  I decided to focus on performers waiting to get on the stage next.  This gave me some time to focus on them before heading off to see the twirling dancers on the stage. 


Prints are available for each sketch for $250 and many originals can be purchased for $400. White museum grade shadow box frames are $100 more. You can e-mail Thor at analogartistdigitalworld@gmail.com
