Lightning in a Paintcan

For the 4th year in a row The Do LaB and participating artists will be collaborating through live painting and a subsequent silent auction, to raise money for The Do LaB’s nonprofit – The Do ArT Foundation, in addition to directly supporting each artist. In previous years, donations went to Sonic Muze to provide musical instruments and art supplies to children in our public school system.


Here’s how it works: Scattered throughout the event grounds will be dozens of live painters creating work that is inspired by the festival.  Artists have been selected throughout the year, and have been invited based on their artistic merit.  This aspect of the festival has grown to become the west coasts premier live painting event.  Throughout the festival we will hold a silent auction where you can bid on a work of art that you love. Don’t miss this opportunity to access amazing art by the most talented live painters.  A portion of the proceeds are donated to the Do ArT Founation charity. Passionate about promoting all contemporary art-forms and their hybrids, Do ArT Foundation recognizes the need to support creative productions for our community such as LIP.


Art Walk is held from 7pm until 12midnight on Sunday where all the live paintings are showcased.  This is the final opportunity to place your bids and take home your favorite piece of art!


Be creative and Live Paint at the Do ArT Foundation booth! Artist Jeffrey Vincent Parise and Darren Minke will be facilitating live painting during the day on the outside walls in the vending area. Please come and feel free to express yourself and make our festival grounds beautiful!


Live Painting outside of Lightning in a Paintcan is encouraged in the campground area only. Please do not set up easels or paintings in the festival area. Any vending or sales of artwork or merchandise needs to be approved in advance by the LIB vending coordinators. Thank you for your understanding.
