ArtIsMobilUs / EveryBodyCanPaint Adds Collaborative Creativity to 50th Anniversary Festival
Bay Area artist Richard Art Felix is an internationally exhibited and collected mixed-media artist and public artist.
To date, he has done more than 300 of his individual Collaborative Public Art pieces since starting the ArtIsMobilUs / EverybodyCanPaint project in 2013.
At this year’s Half Moon Bay Art & Pumpkin Festival, October 14-15, Felix will bring an all-inclusive collaborative mobile ART TEMPLE experience for festival goers to express themselves in the “thinking and creating” format that he has developed doing hundreds of events around the world.
Felix and his team will construct a large-scale ART TEMPLE, uniquely themed for the festival as “What Do YOU Want to Cultivate and Grow?”
The ART TEMPLE will be located on Main Street between Kelly Avenue and Mill Street at the festival’s northern entry/exit.
As lead Artist, Felix will create a geometric design for each temple / wall section for festival goers to paint.
All festival goers choosing to participate will get their own small individual “section” within the design to illuminate on the “What Is The Future You Want To Create?” theme by expressing themselves through painting and/or writing a message.
All participants get their own painters palette, water based non-toxic acrylic paint, a brush and even an apron if they want one.
Felix will paint into the piece along the way and facilitate the collaborative, thinking-creating-community created piece with all the participants until completed.
"My volunteer team and I provide facilitated, interactive, empowering, inspiring, and engaging, art happenings for all and we’re thrilled to bring an inspirational, collaborative, artistic addition to this year’s momentous festival," said Felix.
With over 150 exhibitions, his mixed-media photographic dimensional artworks are in private and corporate collections and museums around the world including the SFMOMA, Denver Art Museum, and the Bibliothe’que Nationale de France to name a few.
