Join Visit Eau Claire from 8:30pm to 11pm on Thursday, June 15 for the lighting of the Baroque sculpture as part of the Prex Claires festivities near the intersection of West Grand Avenue and First Avenue in downtown Eau Claire. A sneak-peek of Grease the Musical presented by the Chippewa Valley Theatre Guild will perform at 8:30pm. Live music will be featured by CollECtive Choir on the Baroque stage starting at 9pm.

Originally a featured piece at Eaux Claires Deux in 2016, Baroque is the product of a skilled Italian design team, headed by Edoardo Tresoldi. Masterfully sculpted and constructed, the mysterious lights enhance the viewer’s experience as Baroque takes center stage along the scenic Chippewa River and brings this ominous pipe organ to life. Baroque offers a one-of-a-kind artistic flavor to the Eau Claire community and its visitors, while igniting conversation for all of those who passersby.

On Thursday evening around 8:30pm, Baroque will be lit for the first time since its return to Eau Claire. The conjoined event will be a part of the Prex Claires activities on Thursday, June 15. For more information on all Prex Claires activities, check out http://blugoldradio.org/prex-claires.
