"Heart Conservatory"
Kimberlee Traub (lead), Laurie Halbe (altar) and Scott Abbott of Open Show LLC (lighting)
The Heart Conservatory was first seen at the Fillmore during PEX Heartburn 2017. Inspired by stained glass, the walls of this temple are decorated with Kimberlee Traub's unique illustrations. Visitors are encouraged to leave notes on the altar for things they want to let into and release from their hearts. These offerings from PEX Summer Fest and Heartburn will be put in the Effigy for the burn.
"Ballon Chain & Mobile Art"
by Michael Cha, Brendon G., Cara C., Wabbly Flips, Gabby & Matt
Let’s pain the skies with color balloons and lights.  Use the rest of the helium to make floating foam shapes. This year it's mobile.
"Festival Forge"

Space Pirates Present: Upcycled Art Festival Forge edition- by Captain Shaggy2K
Following the effigy burn, we will be harnessing it's powerful coal bed to melt and cast your used aluminum. Bring us your waste and be amazed as we up-cycle it into ART.
