Live painting, live music and much more were enjoyed by hundreds at this year’s GOLDEN Fest at the Boynton Beach Arts District. The outdoor exhibit titled “Portraits #ShadesofCulture Murals, hosted by Rolando Chang Barrero‘s ActivistArtistA, showcased eleven new murals for this year’s event while three musicians performed.
Art lovers from all over Florida gathered for the good vibes and better food, capturing photos of the artists adding their finishing touches to their mural. The theme this year was iconic figures in art– from painters such as Salvador Dali and Harlem Renaissance sculptor Augusta Savage, and authors like Gabriel Garcia Marquez and Georgia O’Keeffe.
Participating artists include: Renda Writer while on his World Peace Mural Tour, EMO, Craig McInnis, Birds are Nice, Gregory Dirr, Dana Donaty, A’Liguori, Sidney the Artist, Dalhia Patrice, Thomas Goetz, Alejandra Abad and Lili Botero.
Vivid Arts briefly sat down with the artists for our Podcast, in addition to getting video with videographer Adolfo Bacigalupo, so stay tuned for that video. Studios in the bays were open as well, where artists Nicole Galluccio painted patrons henna tattoos and artist Travis Martin showed people around his space. Check out some of the artwork from the event below. All photos shot by Esteban Garcia.
