UFO’s spotted in Eureka Springs – Unbelievable FUN!

On the evening of March 29, 2012 Basin Spring Park took on an enigmatic glow. Large hoops perpetually spun around colorful laughing women and people danced with their imaginations. At the center of it all, a man worked to record an extraordinary event.

 Unidentified shapes, uncharacteristic displays and unfamiliar lights surrounded the event in Basin Spring Park one day in late March.  It was one of three events now known as the Eureka Springs Creative Energy Project. For international photographer Jeremy McGraw, the project is like a night photography experiment but for the Eureka Springs participants and viewers…it is an Unbelieveably Fun Opportunity (UFO).

The Creative Energy Project

Enigmatic and compelling, McGraw photographs light moving in the night to illustrate the palpable creativity that lives in Eureka Springs everyday. Everyone is encouraged to bring their own creativity to the next Creative Energy Project opportunity. “Light Up the Spring” event is April 13th at Harding Spring and “Drumming in Basin Spring Park” is April 14th. Participants are invited to attend in a glow in the dark costume. Prizes for best costume, best use of body paint and best use of glow sticks/LED lights will be awarded on April 14, 2012.

The Creative Energy Project is made possible by a partnership with the Eureka Springs Downtown Network and downtown businesses and supporters. Eat, Shop and Play in Historic Downtown Eureka Springs; learn more about Downtown Network.
