A Little About Us: 
We are Knomad Colab - a nomadic art duo working to bring the spirit of collaboration and experiential art to Colorado comminuties and beyond. While using the 'outdoors' as both an alternative canvas and gallery space, we employ LED light and sound as nondestructive "paint" mediums to create large-scale and site-specific public art installations.  Here is glimpse of our work! For more images of our previous work, please head to Knomad's website .


Lights at Fish Creek Falls is a unique, and quite possibly, once-in-a-lifetime immersive art event that will benefit out-of-town onlookers and members of the community of awe-inspiring Steamboat Springs, CO.  As brilliant sheets of colorful light cascade down the icy cliffs of the falls, all those present on installation night will be spoiled by majestic, splendorous sites and sounds. We have been eyeing this location for sometime and are so excited to be collaborating with local Steamboat artist and photographer Julie McNally as well as an incredible team of ice climbers to create this one-of-a-kind experience. The official date for the installation is Sunday February 19, 2017.

*If we are not funded by February 15, 2017, we will cancel the event and begin planning for next winter.

Part of the money raised for this project will be used to fund any materials needed to complete the installation. We will be mounting lights all along the vertical path of the now frozen waterfall. In order for this to be a success, we will create special fixtures for our lights that will allow us to mount the lights into the ice. In addition to materials, we will provide a modest stipend to Julie and any key ice-climbers  involved in orchestrating this installation; without them, we would not be able to execute this project.  Finally, remaining funds will be used to support the cost of us traveling to and from the installation site to prepare and execute the project and to create tangible rewards for all of our generous supporters.  


We are hoping to begin collecting funds immediately, as projects of this magnitude take a considerable amount of preplanning. Your generosity is a key ingredient to the creation of an incredible and memorable evening for the visitors and community members of Steamboat Springs. We are humbled by your support and thank you for your willingness to keep Colorado Colorful and whimsical through your donations to this collaborative art project!
