Join Michael Garfield and the Visionary Arts Academy at 3pm MST (5pm EST) on December 16th 2016 for this live ARTJAM!
Since November of 2007, Michael has set up popup open studios and painted in a legendary range of situations – from raging basement clubs to NASA’s Ames Research Center to New Year’s raves in the Costa Rican rainforest – both day and night, onstage and off, alongside internationally renowned artists (Alex & Allyson Grey, Robert Venosa, Martina Hoffmann, Mark Henson, Android Jones, Amanda Sage, Oliver Vernon, Mars-1, Kris D, J Garcia, and many others).
In addition to countless festival appearances, he has held live art residencies in Boulder, Denver, Phoenix, Kansas City, New Orleans, and Austin. Michael is also a leader within the growing community of live artists – curating live art teams and galleries, organizing regional collectives, and covering the action as a frontline journalist.
“Michael is a bio-mechanical lightning rod, he possess a keen intellect and possibly too much talent, and I have never seen him do anything other than stimulate, antagonise, elevate, shake-not-stir, and generally get involved in the center of where ever his roaming griot spirit might be…”
“If the society we are moving towards is one where artists like Michael pervade the scene, then that is a society I judge worthy for my children.”
