Cartwheel Art loves LIGHTNING IN A BOTTLE, the annual festival featuring art, music, and performance taking place this year from May 22-26,2014 with a new location in Bradley, California, located at Lake San Antonio between Los Angeles and San Francisco in Monterey County. Lightning in a Bottle is where we discovered the mandala work of Scott O’keefe and Robert Moondragon, and enjoyed many other art and music events.
Lightning in a Bottle is an exciting festival of “cultural and environmental consciousness”, with music, installation art, live painting, electronic music, yoga, and spiritual workshops focusing on the importance of sustainability. This will be the 9th annual convergence of creative musical and art types, with an emphasis on the community experiencing joy through expression.
For seven years now, Lightning in a Bottle has exposed participants to live painting in Do LaB’s Lightning in a Paint Can, presented by the Do ArT Foundation, with art that allows viewers to interact with the creators during the painting process, all of which is later sold in a silent auction to benefit public art programs for the Do art Foundation. The Do Art Foundation’s silent auction and Art Walk will take place on Sunday, after festival-goers will have the chance to get up close and have a good look at the art being created in front of them for most of the festival.
In addition to live painting, there will be installations all over the festival including Shrine’s Temple of Consciousness, built out of recycled and found objects. Shrine is a folk-artist artist that Cartwheel Art follows through his work at Coachella and other music festivals as well as his many humanitarian projects including that of the Let There Be Light – Shrine edition (Cartwheel Art was LTBL’s media partner). The Temple of Consciousness provides a location for scheduled events and programming which will include over 300 different experiences in yoga, workshops, speakers and exotic world music.
The music lineup for the 9th annual Lightning in a Bottle Music and Arts Festival has been announced, featuring Moby, Little Dragon, Phantogram, Gramatik, Beats Antique, Amon Tobin, Baauer, Gold Panda, Simian Mobile Disco, Claude VonStroke and more!
