Lightning in a Bottle today announced the Visionary Art that will be present at the festival’s 2020 iteration. The MOVA experience by Android Jones will be returning to LIB for the first time since 2017. MOVA is an immersive visual experience and art gallery featuring a full 360° dome projection experience, gallery gift shop and more. Jones and Do LaB have been collaborating on projects since 2010. Throughout their long standing relationship he has constantly pushed the boundaries of combining art with technology, presenting a natural fit for the immersive art-minded LIB community.
Conceptual abstract painters, visionary artists, and co-founders of the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors (a spiritual retreat center for artists outside of New York City founded in 1996), Alex Grey and Allyson Grey, will also return to Buena Vista Lake to share their unique teachings with the LIB community. The pair met in 1975 while attending the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, and are spokespeople for the positives that can be found in exploring a psychedelic path, constantly sharing their teachings about spiritual artistic mysticism around the world. Their work at the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors has created a global-community of artisans and thinkers, and LIB welcomes them back for the second time since their last visit in 2013.
From a talk on Visionary Culture at the Compass, to a live painting session during genre-blending musical performer Emancipator and a co-led Visionary Art Hour at the ArtClave, there will be no shortage of opportunities to connect with the Greys, two of the most highly regarded veteran psychedelic artists and dedicated educators of our time.
Lightning in a Bottle also announced a new theme camp program in which LIB festival-goers are given the opportunity to become a greater part of the LIB family. Co LaB Camps are a collective of camps inside the main festival grounds offering fun, interactive, community-minded experiences and art for attendees to enjoy. Not only will this offer Lightning in a Bottle patrons the chance to showcase their unique and diverse creative minds, but it will also allow new relationships to blossom and for the LIB community to strengthen.
No Co LaB idea is too big or too small - the initiative allows festival goers to take on greater responsibility at the festival, and accepted Co LaB Camps will be given a dedicated place within the festival to camp and execute their visions for all of LIB to enjoy. Co LaB Camps will live together onsite so that LIBers can bounce around and experience a vibrant street of boundless creativity.
