DEVIATE IS BACK and ready to blow your mind with a mind-bending fusion of art and music. We’re talking an electrifying art show, an epic party, and an interactive experience all rolled into one. Think cutting-edge contemporary art, live music that will leave you begging for an encore, and an industrial vibe that’s sure to get your blood pumping. And let’s not forget the mouth-watering food and drink that’ll keep you fueled all night long.
DEVIATE powered by Hendricks Commercial Properties and Geronimo Hospitality is 21 and over so leave the kids at home and get ready to DEVIATE.
DEVIATE will feature nearly 30 artists from around the region showcasing their unique designs, sounds and everything in between. The artist lineup welcomes new and returning artists, including:
- Luis Reyes finds unique antiques and transforms them into eclectic pieces. The Beloit artist incorporates nostalgia with current events in his life or what’s going on in society into his work.
- Fashion designer Christine Adar returns to DEVIATE and she’s bringing her boldest and most daring designs yet for this year’s fashion show.
- Dustin Eckhardt has made a name for himself throughout the Stateline area, best known for his large-scale murals that can be found around Rockford. He uses inspiration from nature to create bold, vibrant art that evokes conversation.
- Zach D is a Beloit-based musician making his DEVIATE debut with his blend of pop, hip-pop, rap and acoustic soul.
- Kim Witte is bringing body paint and special effects makeup to DEVIATE for the first time. She’ll be using bright colors and intricate textures to turn the ordinary into extraordinary fantasy characters through body painting.
The majority of artists will be selling their artwork throughout the night. DEVIATE artists keep 100% of their sales proceeds and are solely responsible for all sales transactions. Most artists will accept cash, and some will accept card payments.
“Some of the best and most unique artists from around the region will be showcasing their work all in one space in downtown Beloit,” said Ryan Hickey, director of events and programming for Geronimo Hospitality Group. “There’s going to be something for everyone, and we’re excited to bring the community together to celebrate, collaborate and deviate.”
The goal of DEVIATE is to create a high-energy, one-of-a-kind experience in downtown Beloit that celebrates the city’s continued growth, modernism and growing art culture. The event will indulge the senses and push the limits of creativity and expression; expect to see live music and DJs on multiple stages, lighting landscapes, painters, photographers, dancers, sculptors, live artists and more.
