Music + Art
For the second year of Convergence, the Sculpture Park will pay homage to both “traditional” festival artwork and Arcosanti’s mission of stewardship to the natural environment. This dual focus will take the form of several large-scale interactive sculptures coming from Burning Man 2018 and land art pieces created by half a dozen artists using found natural materials from Arcosanti’s site.
Art park curator and Convergence co-found Elana Novali will be presenting her own piece, Luna Flora, a 16 foot tall climbable blooming lotus flower with a metal work moon at her center. This impressive work will serve as a centerpiece to anchor the philosophies of the park, including our collective relationship to Mother Gaia, the cosmos, and to our fellow humans. Participants will be invited to climb up into Luna Flora using steps attached to her base where they will find a safe place in her warm, womb-like interior for connectivity and conversation.
