Art In Nature: The Nature of Art Festival

Imagine a free admission performing and visual arts festival among ancient trees and open meadows, with festivalgoers engaged with nature and art in a multitude of ways. This is the annual Art in Nature: The Nature of Art Festival, held along the Stream Trail in Redwood Regional Park in Oakland, California, and featuring over 200 artists and arts groups.

The festival title reflects two distinct aims:

  • Art in Nature: performing different expressions of art in nature.
  • The Nature of Art: revealing the artists’ process, techniques, and tools.

The festival is guided by the principle that all art forms originate from a universal human characteristic—creativity. Our festival conveys this universality by revealing the creative process in a variety of art forms, and also by giving festivalgoers access to their own creativity through many participatory activities and performances. Art in Nature: the Nature of Art Festival is an occasion for artists to be heard, seen, discovered and celebrated.
