COVER STORY

Light It Up

Meet a few of the many One Spark creators, then make your plans to see them all

Posted:

About 900 artists and entrepreneurs are about to invade Downtown Jacksonville, vying for a piece of the pie: a crowdfund of $250,000, $1 million in capital investments and immediate individual contributions. It’s called One Spark, and it’s anticipated to be one of the biggest events the city’s ever experienced.

Created in 2011 by Elton Rivas, Dennis Eusebio and Varick Rosete, One Spark is modeled after ArtPrize, an international art competition held in Grand Rapids, Mich.

The five-day event features artists, entrepreneurs and innovators displaying everything from poetry and solar panels to live music and pole-dance fitness — even a U.S. Navy-themed board game — at venues including The Florida Theatre, Burrito Gallery and the Jacksonville Public Library.

Here are a few of the creators whose work you can see during the event. For a complete list, go to One Spark's website.
