CONNECT at Bernheim — Don’t Miss It

Squallis Puppeteers

Squallis Puppeteers

CONNECT at Bernheim is just days away.  The annual celebration of all that is possible when art, nature and science intersect takes place Saturday, August 24 from 6:24 p.m. to 10:24 p.m.

In its fifth year, CONNECT at Bernheim will challenge your mind and delight your senses. Artists will set up around Lake Nevin with funky, fun and spontaneous art displays and demonstrations.

Nationally known installation artist, Craig Colorusso, presents his solar powered sound sculpture, Sun Boxes. Sun Boxes is comprised of 20 speakers, operated independently by the sun, that together create a Bb guitar chord.

This year’s art demonstrations will also include participants in CONNECTglow, a sculpture challenge in which participants create light sculptures without the use of a generator or AC power. This will be a juried process with the top artist receiving $1,000 and $500 for the second prize.

Also new this year is CONNECTfilm – A film festival of shorts by local filmmakers whose work also embraces the essence of CONNECT at Bernheim.   

Three great bands are also slated to entertain the crowd.  Troubadours of Divine Bliss, New Mother Nature and Old Baby will perform at Bernheim’s Sunset Amphitheater.  And the popular Squallis Puppeteers will be making the rounds again.

You can bring the family, make it a date night or a girls’ night out.  At $5 a person, don’t pass it up.  Enjoy the beer, food, art, music and fun.  Come and CONNECT at Bernheim!

    Have been to several Connects — but last night the last two bands were awful. Bernheim’s setting lends itself to some beautiful music, and these two bands were just grunge musicians, whom, I think, must have just emerged from the garage!! PLEASE, locate and book musicians with talent, like you have in the past.
