This weekend brings Brewery Artwalk where artists who work and live and the world’s largest art colony open their studios to the public. Visitors can see art in all mediums–painting, drawing, sculpture, illustration, design, print making, video, fashion, installation, ceramics, jewelry, architecture, costume–and meet the creators.
While the Artwalk (and parking!) is free, be sure to bring $5 for a trippy time inside “The Vortex of Destiny,” the 3D black light experience created by tech guru Dave Taylor of SenovvA Productions and Debi Cable, the co-founder of the Pershing Square Art Gallery and former Los Angeles Burning Man art director.
Cable explains the origins of The Vortex of Destiny:
Dave originally came up with the concept of the vortex several years ago but when the “Carnival Of Mirrors” Theme for Burning Man 2015 ,was released, he thought Is was perfect timing to create his masterpiece! He asked me to create a giant 3D blacklight mural for the ‘Amazing Spinning Contraption’ to be the centerpiece for his Burning Man camp, The Destiny Lounge. The vibrant 16′ x 28′ mural depicts both the Creation and the destruction of the Universe thru a giant flaming asteroid that’s reflected in the infinity mirrors inside.
This traveling 3D blacklight art installation, hailed as the grand finalé of a day at the Artwalk, has been dazzling crowds at arts and music festivals across the country, and has been seen at the Electric Daisy Carnival, Lightning in A Bottle, and last year at the Musuem of Art and History in Lancaster. The Vortex of Destiny will be open during the Brewery Artwalk, April 2 and 3, from 11 am to 6 pm each day, along with a large three room display of different 3D black light environments.
