Lightning in a Bottle, California’s premiere campout music and arts festival is a world-renowned innovator in festival culture blending music, art, wellness and sustainability. Do LaB’s Lightning in a Bottle 2017 takes place Memorial Day Weekend May 24 – May 29 at the Lake San Antonio recreation area in central California.
The public art non-profit Do Art Foundation is curating Lightning in a Paintcan at Lightning in a Bottle 2017! After envisioning and refining the festival live painting concept over the last 10 years, this year Do Art is innovating, pushing the live painting experience to be more predominant, visible and accessible for festival goers. Get ready to buy art and meet and observe the most talented live painters! Watch as your favorite artists transform wooden panels into incredible paintings over the course of the event! We will also feature 8 large scale mural works in designated areas. Every night, come join the artists and Do Art between 7-10pm at the famous LIP ARTWALK to purchase your favorite original painting.
Installation art is an integral part of the Lightning in a Bottle experience. We encourage you to take time out to explore, experience and gather inspiration from the installations, which range from smaller interactive pieces to larger-than-life sculptures and architectural pieces.
Pack up the little ones and get ready to make a memory because fun for the whole family awaits at LIB. With each passing year we pack more into the experience for kids and families alike. If your youngsters have a knack for art or they are eager to express themselves then take a look at all the things kids, teens and parents can do at Family Love Village (FLV) for a preview into the excitement ahead. With three major programs and dozens of workshops to choose from there’s sure to be something for every happy camper.
