Indian Wells Arts Festival, three days of art & entertainment Published: Thursday, March 12, 2015 8:19 PM Pacific
Always a favorite among art enthusiasts is the incredibly talented Falossi family of artists whose rock sculptures inspire nothing less than awe as the award-winning ‘rock duo’ David Falossi and his young son Christopher chip away a work of art from a stone block. Painter Linda Shrader and her daughter Echo Westover will create a spectacular large-scale mural, completed from start to finish over the three-day event; and, glass-blower Bruce Freund will transform sand into colorful, delicate hand-blown glass art with temperatures of more than 2,100 degrees in his portable furnace.
New to the Festival this year is portraiture artist Peter Mikulak whose talent rose to fame with national recognition of his unique and edgy portrait painting techniques while selling his works of the ‘Forever Marilyn’ exhibit in Palms Springs, and now prominently featured in luxury galleries and hotels such as the Hyatt Regency.
Adding to the energy of the event is the Rancho Mirage High School ‘Flash Mob’ who will deliver a breakout performance for Saturday festival-goers; and, fun photo-ops for attendees presented by the Cathedral City High School Digital Arts and Technology Academy (DATA) and event primary sponsor, Hot Purple Energy; as wells as an assortment of wine, cocktail and food offerings, including a Sunday “Eggs + Champagne in The Garden” brunch menu till noon, and children’s activities.
