A few weekends ago, I had the pleasure of attending Art Outside with my best friend, Megan, and boyfriend, Ross. This would mark our first "legit" camping festival together, and we couldn't have been more excited.
The festival took place at Apache Pass in Rockdale, Texas, the same venue that previously hosted Nocturnal. Being an all-ages event, we didn't know what to expect. Luckily, the festival was set up in a way that allowed campers to roam in and out of festival grounds however as they please, bringing whatever they please, all within a 5 minute or so walking proximity. This was pretty nifty. In the most hypothetical sense, a group of sly young adults could backpack a 6 pack and a few Cohibas and not have to worry one bit. Seeing as how uptight security is at most music festivals nowadays, this added feature of convenience was a mega plus to the entire experience.
The art displayed throughout the festival was absolutely incredible. Some of the art seen included massive art installments, interactive sculptures, live artists painting alongside live djs, and many more. The enchanting, thought provoking, and bizarre displays led me to a whole greater appreciation for artists.
The following are close up images of one particular artist's work by the name of Christian. This humble young man is simply brilliant.
Welcome to the inner musings and mind gems that I've harnessed from the thought streams that scurry across mind. Here you'll find the experiences, reflections, and learnings I feel worthy of documenting as my journey unfolds.
