In its fifth year, CONNECT at Bernheim challenged minds and delighted the senses. Artists set up around Lake Nevin with funky, fun and spontaneous art displays and demonstrations.
Nationally known installation artist, Craig Colorusso, presented 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 included participants in CONNECTglow, a sculpture challenge in which participants create light sculptures without the use of a generator or AC power. This was a juried process with the top artist receiving $1,000 and $500 for the second prize.
Also new this year was CONNECTfilm – A film festival of shorts by local filmmakers whose work also embraces the essence of CONNECT at Bernheim.
CONNECT at Bernheim never fails to deliver great music. This year three great bands performed. The Troubadours of Divine Bliss, New Mother Nature and Old Baby delivered amazing sets at Bernheim’s Sunset Amphitheater. And the popular Squallis Puppeteers made the rounds again.
