KAABOO launched KAABOO ArtworK this past September with an art and music ‘mix-perience’ at the Del Mar Racetrack and Fairgrounds. The event featured live mural painting, intricate sculpture installations and unique exhibitions by dozens of artists esteemed worldwide, in addition to comedy, fashion, beauty and craft beer events. The ArtworK gallery, curated by San Francisco-based artist and KAABOO Art Director, Amandalynn, featured a variety of pop-up exhibitions with paintings, jewelry, photography, sculptures and installations － many for sale － by more than 80 artists. In reference to the inaugural and future events, Amandalynn said, “music and art are so naturally interwoven, it only makes sense to highlight them both with equal enthusiasm.”
Described by the organizers as an event “created by music lovers for music lovers,” the atmosphere of the three-day “sound voyage” was enhanced with murals by Ian Ross, Brendan Monroe, Hueman, and Jet Martinez, among many others.
