Art Installations: Let Your Imagination Run Wild!
Astral Harvest is a community rich in talent and ingenuity. We are interested in artists who think BIG and beyond the norm! Help us create an atmosphere that stimulates the senses. we have room for large, interactive, and/or thought provoking art installations that push creative boundaries.
- Lights, lights, and more lights! There are nooks, crannies, pathways, and treasures that would benefit from a touch of ambient lighting to accentuate their beauty at night.
- Proposals should include description of lighting and your experience, photos (if possible), and asking fee. Preference for self-powered and free-standing, however, open to hearing ideas.
- Pouring rain or blazing sun...the show must go on! With the many activities that Astral Harvest provides day and night, structures of are always in high demand. Domes, yurts, and circus tents - we are interested! Please provide photos, dimension, and asking fee with submission.
