Desert Oasis: Art Exposed
While we all know that music is an art form in and of itself, presentation art and exhibits have become very prevalent in music festivals. Art adds a different touch to each festival as artists put together unique pieces or exhibits that contribute to the overall experience. Desert Oasis has allowed for local artists to bring their talents to the stage and be showcased.
As attendees walk into the festival, they cannot miss “High Rise 2.0” by Adam Enrique Rodriguez and XXXX. This piece is a mural that “represent(s) Indio, CA” and serves as a focal point for Desert Oasis. You simply cannot miss it.
If you’ve ever been to the Empire Polo Grounds, you are bound to have seen the iconic lion statues. They protect the beer gardens, if you will, and at Desert Oasis, they are decked out in Rastafarian colors and patterns. Entitled “Rasta Lions” by Rick and Rayo Art Creative, they add a fun flare and a great photo opp.
Over by the Mecca stage, guests will love the “Upside Down” art installation by Chris Sanchez. It’s not only a captivating art piece, but looks amazing at night!
While the music is going on either stage, you cannot miss the brilliant artists on stilts. They are decked out in an amazing costume and either juggling, twirling, and at the very least, entertaining. We promise you, you can’t take your eyes off them.
Additionally, 805 has put together a great array of activities for all to enjoy. Grab a plastic white ball and play a game of beer pong with your friends or go head-to-head in a game of cornhole. Win or lose, have a beer in hand (for those 21 ) and enjoy yourself!
