The Life is Beautiful festival in Las Vegas has now come to an end, leaving behind not only good memories but also a bunch of beautiful murals and installations part of their art program curated by Charlotte Dutoit (from Justkids). Also in this occasion the artists transformed the festival landscape into a “magical art-inspired playground to give people a playful and unexpected escape into art.”
This years team counted with the participation of renowned artists like Borondo, D*Face, Fintan Magee, Misaki Kawai, Maser, Lakwena, Roa, Li-Hill, Saner, Cyrcle, Thomas Dambo, Edoardo Tresoldi and Spencer Olsen.
During the festival, the artists were given the freedom to create whatever they wanted and the result is massive; 11 large-scale murals, a huge abandoned motel turned into an interactive playground and 6 installations placed throughout the festivals footprint.
Even if the festival is now finished, there is no reason to panic, the murals are still visible in Downtown Las Vegas and will be for a while, so if you happen to be around, enjoy!
And some of the installations…
