The build for Le Attrata took about nine months and a crew of 30 people. “This was an amazing group effort,” Therm founder Justin Gray says. “We got all these incredible, talented, brilliant people, and that was why it was built … In my opinion, this is fine art, and that’s why I got on board.”
This 2016 art project was a larger than life collaboration sculpture between Reno artists Mischell Riley aka Phoenix Rising and Colin O'Bryan aka Wrecking House. The interactive statue was inspired in part by the da Vinci Workshop theme of the festival.
Over ONE BILLION toothbrushes, which take hundreds of years to decompose, make their way to landfills annually. To further exasperate the epidemic the American Dental Association (ADA) now recommends replacing your toothbrush every three months, further threatening the stability of our environment. The artists' wish ReVITALize to inspire us to lessen the plastic plaque of the earth. Let's use our power to ReVITALize our youth's awareness of environmental and social responsibility and ignite their passion for the artistic power of a collective, and help them understand how their small contributions can make enormous differences in the world.
