Dusklit is presented outdoors on the historic Seligmann Homestead. Once home to the Surrealist Kurt Seligmann, and frequented by Marcel Duchamp, Kay Sage, and Max Ernst, the property carries a history of art and magic. This year, the festival falls on Kurt Seligmann’s 119th birthday.

The interdisciplinary, participatory nature of Dusklit makes the festival accessible to visitors of all ages and backgrounds. Dusklit takes place rain or shine.

Dusklit is an artist-run festival organized by Olivia Baldwin, Cody Rounds, and Jamie Sanin.
