Electric Desert- A Live Art Event

LIVE ART EVENT: Build 10a-5p, and Dance 5-8p!

5-8pm. $5 cover. Tasty treats and beverages available by donation.
A "Good Life" event, "The Electric Desert" will feature a pop-up psychedelic desert in which to wander. Having built saguaros, barrel cacti, rocks and shrubs from PVC and cardboard, Abq artist Andrew Fearnside will bring an artificial space of celebration and contemplation to life. The public is invited to be moved by a playlist of electronic atmospheres curated by the Unicorn Collective.

BUILD: Between 10am and 5pm, Albuquerque artist Andrew Fearnside will build and paint an artificial desert, replete with saguaros, stones and desert marigolds, from cardboard and PVC. Sound artists Kristin Satterlee and Arne Gulerud will install a sonic collection of artificial desert sounds. The public is invited to inscribe messages about life in the high desert on the cacti as they emerge.

Tickets to the Dance are available at the door, and before the show from:
