Nonprofit arts organization, the Bee Cave Arts Foundation is gearing up for its first annual light festival, Buzzfest, which will take place at the Hill Country Galleria.
The outdoor festival will run from Dec. 17-19 and will feature local and national artists. Guests can anticipate an interactive experience, according to Deby Childress, director of the Bee Cave Arts Foundation.
Buzzfest will feature digital light installations, original music scores, performers and augmented reality pieces accessed through the newly launched Buzzfest application.
A 20-minute performance will also take place at the galleria’s Central Plaza each night from 7-8 p.m.
“We’ve done all different sorts of artwork, but we really never exhibited technology, and that was the area [the Bee Cave Arts Foundation] was really interested in,” Childress said.
The inaugural theme of the event is “Ocean of Bioluminescence,” and exhibits will take inspiration from the glowing creatures within the depths of the ocean, according to a press release.
Featured artists will include Jordan Remar, Takuma Katagiri, DadaLab, Mind Works and several others.
The event and all performances are free for attendees. However, glow-in-the-dark accessories kits can be provided with a donation to the arts foundation.
