Art: MARS-1 > "Topographic Down"


We’re super pleased to announce our inaugural featured artist for this experience is MARS-1 aka Mario Martinez, originally from Boulder, Colorado. His signature style of vast, abstracted, quasi-extraterrestrial looking landscapes feature imagery of surreal distortions, contained within spherically convex transparent bubbles. Skillfully combining optical color blending with perspective line work, his painting techniques result in very three-dimensional forms, which echo the anatomy of architecture, and microcosmic structures of biology. He will have a special space and place for attendees to come view more of his art in person at our event. It is his art that adorns each page of this website. Please check out more of his creations at

We will also present other artist’s the opportunity to come paint in the Amphitheater, and have their art on display alongside MARS-1’s in a special open-air curation (weather permitting). Painters and sketchers of all styles are invited and encouraged to apply for involvement by emailing us on or before January 31, 2016.

Lastly, we’re open to submissions for installations curated for our “Field of Dreams” area on the Meadow. Its a Full Moon after all..  time to celebrate our inner lunartics. Submit your idea for installations by emailing us on or before January 31, 2016.
