Abboriginal rang in 2017 at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. We were responsible for main stage design which included custom artwork created by local artist Anthony Davis that was used to projection map upon. We built a chandelier and custom light boxes to round out the visual look. The musical acts were RozenBridge a local cello and guitar group that really has some impressive tunes in their repertoire and DJ Jumbii a long time friend of Abboriginal. Here are a few videos from the evening to give you some scope of the production.
Abboriginal has been fortunate to work on the procuring, promotion, and production of the International Mountain Bike Association (IMBA) World Summit. The process had been years in the making and the event exceeded every expectation truly a huge week for Bentonville and Arkansas. There were 7 venues in flex and we had gear all over the region and ran the main production at the newly minted Record in downtown #Bentonville. We also finished up installing artist Leftyeyeball huge 3D sculpture at Pedaler's Pub that is bike themed! Here are a few snaps from the weekend including a video of some projection mapping we did at the Meteor Theater afterparty Saturday night. So many great things to replay for you all but I know attention spans are short so shoot me an email if you want more info about the weeks production.
Had the privilege of working with Argentinian artist Lucas Aoki
to create some art work on the new downtown Rogers, Arkansas "Rail Yard" jump park at Lake Atalanta. The project took only two days to complete and we had a blast doing it. Click the image below for a recap video put together by the city. Gotta love it when everyone is on board for art!
Celebrated my birthday in style with my friends at the annual Fayetteville Roots Festival. The weekend brought me gifts in the form of legendary bluegrass musician Peter Rowan and the Milk Carton Kids performances.
Excited to curate and participate in a video focused art show at Bottle Rocket Gallery. I help manage the building and help find and help artists in the community. It's been a lot of fun so far and we have managed to really shake it up in #Bentonville. July 1st Abboriginal and a group of other artists are installing various forms of video sculpture and interactive installations. Check out the event page here to learn more.
Abboriginal teamed up with the crew from the Bentonville Sessions to help produce songwriter Will Gunselman's set. Love that sweet acoustic sound breathing life into one of town's oldest buildings.
Abboriginal was fortunate enough to attend the Dallas Art Fair in April and took along the camera to show off the latest in contemporary and modern art. Click image below for google photo set.
Join Abboriginal on March 5th at the Meteor Theater to support the Bentonville Community Radio Station as they raise funds to build the station this summer. We will be spinning some reggae classics, instrumental hip-hop, and underground deep bass gems to start spring with a step. Peep the Facebook event here.
