Art & Lightning in a Paintcan

For its 10th year, LIB is curating Lightning in a Paintcan at Lightning in a Bottle 2017! After envisioning and refining the festival live painting concept over the last 10 years, this year we’re innovating, pushing the live painting experience to be more predominant, visible and accessible for festival goers.

Get ready to buy art and meet and observe the most talented live painters! We are again, hand selecting an intimate group of Artists who will create smaller more affordable works throughout the festival!  Watch as your favorite artists transform wooden panels into incredible paintings over the course of the event! We will also feature 4 large scale mural works in designated areas.  These will be for sale, but also made affordable and accessible online after the festival with the creation of signed print editions.

As we do every year, Do LaB will be directly selling paintings, so that everyone has the opportunity to participate in taking artwork home and hang to memorialize what will be the best festival year yet! During the day, watch as more pieces from world-renown artists appear and proliferate within the LIP area. Every night, come join the artists between 7-10pm at the famous LIP ARTWALK to purchase your favorite original painting. Money from these sales goes directly to the artists, and supports the creation of public art programs.


Installation art is an integral part of the Lightning in a Bottle experience. We encourage you to take time out to explore, experience and gather inspiration from the installations, which range from smaller interactive pieces to larger-than-life sculptures and architectural pieces.
