Mountain Jam takes pride in introducing amazingly talented visual artists who exhibit their work through the festival grounds. The following are a few examples of artists and artwork you can expect to see as you walk around the festival!
To help celebrate the tenth anniversary of the Mountain Jam music festival, to be held on Hunter Mountain June 5-8, Woodstock artist Michael Hunt will present a series of interactive and visual art projects commemorating the universal experience of attending a festival.
“In this increasingly scary world of ours – with climate change and government & corporate overreach – the recent proliferation of music & arts festivals around the world and America makes total sense, said Michael. “It’s empowering to be part of a festival; there’s this spirit of community experiencing a moment in time together and doing it peacefully.” Hunt is honored to be part of Mountain Jam – now in its tenth year. “Mountain Jam is a leader in the festival world. They do it right up there.”
My vivid cubist interpretation of a psychedelic world is based upon stained glass and shattered glass imagery that portray the effects of light illuminating and shining through transparent surfaces. It is enhanced by urban, surreal and abstract concepts spawned by life experiences in combination with embellished stories intriguing viewers to continuously explore the enigmatic and layered composition of light - hearted subjects. This animated quality, central to my artwork, keeps art patrons mesmerized and anticipating what they will discover next by exploring my work.
