American Made: The Art of Manufacturing is a mesmerizing musical and visual tribute to American industry.
Performed live by visual media artists The Now Device in collaboration with orchestras around the country, the show features larger-than-life imagery of local factories and live video of the conductor and musicians.
This visual spectacle is choreographed in real time, and set to classic symphonic works by American composers such as Aaron Copland, Leonard Bernstein, and John Corigliano. The result is a powerfully immersive, aural and visual experience that tells the inspiring tale of manufacturing’s vital contribution to our nation’s past, present, and future.
American Made has been our biggest revenue-generating event of the year, as well as a powerful vehicle for initiating successful sponsorship conversations with companies we’ve never talked to before.
