THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO WAS PART OF
"THE LIVE FESTIVAL"
About a week has passed since we experienced ?THE LIVE FESTIVAL? Art & Music Show on Saturday September 19th, 2009. Our show consisted of 3 events in 3 separate spaces within one venue (THE CAT CLUB West Hollywood, CA). An alternative gallery space, the patio was transformed into an alternative gallery space. A VIP Room, transformed into a mini gallery with an artist painting live. And the main bar with live bands, DJs and rappers on stage.
? Our main exhibition space was the patio. This was transformed into an Alternative Space Gallery. Our creative people made a site-specific-installation based on architectural designs that served us both visually and interactively. The design was both a ceiling for the patio and a wall to hang artworks. It was design to became a hanging mechanism for artworks. This was an amazing installation! The alternative gallery space has been described as one big installation.
? An extra room inside the venue on the upper level (VIP Room) was transformed into an mini gallery with prolific live painter artist Michael Pukac painting live.
? The Live theme also included live music by bands and DJs at the stage next to the bar. The stage and bar area included 3 small visual designs that connected visually with the alternative gallery in the back. Also the wall had 1 LCD screen showing a 3D animation video design of the Installation.
First I would like to thank Jesus Eduardo Magaña, Paulina Boyer-Magaña, Andrew Jason, Jackie Munoz, Jarod Allen, and JJ Paredes @ WWW.APHIDoIDEA.COM . Even though, we only had less than two months to prepare for this show they worked diligently to a great result. Their creative designs are amazing! They have been there since day one and have worked extra hard to assure an awesome Installation. Their team work contributed to the success of the installation. Their efforts and collaborative work were key to the success of the show. I would like to thank everyone on their side, their friends who came out to assist with construction and set up and video. I know that many came out to help out their fellow friends. Thank you all for your support.
