W:O*Art tent 2017 at Wacken Foundation Camp
This year’s W:O*Art tent has plenty to offer. You can admire the new W:O*Art calendar 2018 of Jens Rusch, which was produced in cooperation with Sea Shepherd, as well as the photographs of Sven Ellerbrock. His photobook „The Pit“ can be purchased locally. 100% of the proceeds will go to the Wacken Foundation. Furthermore, the comics of Kim Schmidt will be presented, amongst others the series “Local Heroes”. You can gaze at the work of Thomas Ewerhard as well, who for example designed album artworks for Avantasia and t-shirts for Amon Amarth. Ole Ohlendorffs portraits of multiple artists will be shown as well. His last Lemmy portrait will be signed by different musicians during the W:O:A 2017 and sold by auction in favor of the Wacken Foundation.
Of course, there are also some opportunities for you, to get active or to become a little piece of art yourself. You can get a face painting from Maja’s Farbenzauber, no matter if corpse paint or W:O:A logo. Each day she also will use bodypainting to turn a model into living art. The model will then walk across the W:O:A area. The Berufsinitiative Triebwerk will offer action painting, where you can put everything, that’s going through your mind, on paper.
The guys of the supported band Eve of Alana, former Trailer Park Sex, will show you, how to stain your own t-shirts with screen printing. Best examples are their own band shirts. As in previous years, they will give half of their proceeds to the Wacken Foundation.
Last but not least, the Musikschulen Schleswig-Holstein will provide the musical aspect at our art tent. At their drum contest “Feet of Hell” you get the chance, to show who has got the fastest feet. The attendance fees will completely be used for Wacken Foundation’s support of the hard rock and heavy metal music.
Stop by and take a look – we are looking forward to see you!
