Life Cube Open, Live and Unplugged

I am amazed by the extraordinary talent and creative energy that has embraced the Life Cube Project. The mission of the Cube is to encourage people to write down their goals, dreams, wishes, and aspirations AND to maximize community participation. I think we have successfully connected art and community. By coming to the Cube to paint, write, play music, dance and even juggle – you have helped make this vision a reality.

Unfortunately, due to budget and liability issues, we regret having to cancel some of the outstanding bands and talent that were going to perform over the next week. However, the music will continue in an “unplugged” format, with non-amplified acoustic bands and musicians invited to come and play. Performers, artists, families, visitors, and residents are encouraged to visit Fremont & 9th Street to paint, play music, fill out “wish-sticks” and contribute to the positive vibe and creative atmosphere.

While there have been ongoing changes to final programming for Burn Week, we are excited to confirm that the installation is open, illuminated, and welcoming to visitors, artists and ‘un-plugged’ performers daily until the night of Friday, March 21, 2014. The night of the burn we will have live concert performances from Sabriel, Moksha and (DJ) Incaman.

The Life Cube Project Downtown Las Vegas has achieved and exceeded many of our wildest expectations. I thank each and every one of you for making this dream come true.

The countdown is on! Eight days…

About The Life Cube Project

The Life Cube creates electrifying public installations emphasizing interactive and collaborative art. Its dual mission connects art with community, and inspires participants to articulate and share their goals and dreams. This project encourages participants to look at their past, engage in the present, and set goals for the future. It is based on the artist’s belief that if you write down what you want to accomplish in life, the chances of attaining it is much, much higher! Tens of thousands of "Cube-ists" have already been positively impacted by their experience with the Life Cube Project, at Burning Man, in downtown Las Vegas and beyond. We're in the planning stages to bring the Life Cube Project to cities and arts festivals across the country and around the world! At each installation, local volunteers, teachers and school children, artists, builders, performers and other visionaries interact with the Cube every hour of every day. Its exterior, which incorporates many writeable and climbable surfaces, is a constantly changing swirl of painted murals, drawings, and handwritten messages contributed by the community. The Cube is brilliantly illuminated at night, attracting nocturnal artists and celebrants attracted by the colorful light show, with spots and lasers serving as a beacon in the evening skies. The Life Cube encourages the expression of goals, wishes, dreams, and aspirations in mural art, on wish-stick postcards, and with personal inscriptions on message boards. On selected evenings and weekends, area musicians and entertainers perform, culminating in a special closing event that gathers thousands of residents and visitors in a magical community celebration. At the end of the installation, in a spectacular fiery ceremony, the Cube and all of the gathered wishes are burned together and sent up into the Universe in a sacred shower of sparks and flame. Since 2010, the Life Cube Project has inspired over a thousand donors to contribute funds supporting the project, and even more have given of their time, talent and spirit. We're grateful for your support, as we hope to bring the Life Cube Project to more communities of artists and dreamers in days to come!
