TBWA\Chiat\LA 5353 Music Art Fest- 09.18.10

chiatfest0.jpg Such a fun way to spend the day before hopping on the LAX-CDG flight ~ TBWA\Chiat\LA 5353 Music Art Fest ~ an evolution of what was once a company wide picnic, this year TBWA\Chiat\Day threw a party in their parking lot celebrating their team, art, and music accompanied by food trucks (Kogi and Greasy Weiner) and an Ice Cream Sandwich Bar! The music was quite the line up with performances by Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Fool’s Gold, Fitz and the Tantrums, and Local Natives. Then there was the art ~ nice idea to have an art show featuring non work pieces by TBWA\Chiat\Day employees, many of which don’t necessarily even work in the creative side! The beer was flowing, the dunk tank was splashing, the music was blasting, and everyone seemed to be having a great time as they popped in and out of the building ~ i guess the only downside (or upside?) to having this year’s event in the parking lot versus offsite, you can hang out AND still work at the same time! Huge thanks to the folks at TBWA\Chiat\Day for inviting me in, honored to have made the “friends of…” list! Check out the fun scene from the top of the parking garage, the giant chicken sculpture that farts bubbles, the pixelated bike, the burnt golf balls and more on the next page!

Couldn’t resist ~ climbed up to the top of the parking garage to get a bird’s eye view… chiatfest1.jpg


As you cross under the bridges? tunnels? you already see that chicken’s eyes peering over the crowd… chiatfest3.jpg

The chicken is by artist and director Andreas Nilsson… chiatfest4.jpg


… and it totally blows bubbles out of its rear… though more often than not it was dribbling a puddle of bubble goo… chiatfest6.jpg

The balloon drip in the front! chiatfest7.jpg

Love the pixelated shadows it creates! chiatfest10.jpg

Ice cream sandwiches! This one is cookies and cream between sugar cookies rolled in red velvet cake… chiatfest11.jpg

Love Doug Alves’ illustration work… chiatfest17.jpg



Bill Hornstein collected up burnt golf balls he discovered at Elkins Ranch Golf Course after the fires in 2009… some are nearly indistinguishable, others look like mini meteors, some melting balls of chocolate… so amazing! chiatfest20.jpg
