Cirque du Soleil Hires nonprofit, RiseUP, to produce Downtown Mural
2019 was a special year for the annual Cirque du Soleil show in Hartford, Connecticut. That year, the world renowned acrobatic performance, brought their "Big Tent" to town which included an extended length of time for the Luzia performance.
When Cirque du Soleil is doing a major production in a city they are committed to leaving a lasting positive impact. During their Hartford show, they hired Hartford based nonprofit, The RiseUP Group/CT Murals, to help them make the mural come to life.
The effort took a collaboration between the City, Hartford Business Improvement District, and artist Corey Pane.
The colorful and imaginative mural is seen by thousands of people every day as they come in and out of Downtown Hartford.
