The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival is underway and, while there is always a lot of pub for the music part of the fest, there is not much love for the art. This is a shame as usually it is pretty rad. Check out some of this year’s cool art installations on display at the Empire Polo Fields:
This post will be updated as new photos come in.
These things are huge!!!
This one is a video, which appears to be the best way to appreciate this piece:
The view of #emptycoachella before the massive crowds came in this morning (when you hear the hum of lawn mowers instead of live music). Yknow, even if Guns N Roses and The Kills and Run the Jewels and A$AP Rocky and Sufjan Stevens(…) weren't playing at #coachella this weekend, I'd still be perfectly content staring at this beautiful and trippy mirror art installation 'Portals' by Phillip Smith III ( 'Katrina Chairs' by Alexandre Arrechea is in the background here). Stay tuned to the @brinsonbanks account today for our peeks into the festival. (And extra points if you can spot a tiny @davidwalterbanks in this video) #coachella2016
There is always tons of cool stuff to see at Coachella…even the trashcans:
And whatever it is that is going on here:
