Bulbfest 2019 was a two-day festival that highlighted the ruggedly beautiful landscapes of the Albany Bulb with dance performances and new art installations.
The Albany Bulb is a city park at a former construction debris landfill surrounded by spectacular views of San Francisco Bay. The Albany Bulb has long been known for informal sculpture and art. Love the Bulb, a community arts organization presented this festival to highlight the value of this endangered and uniquely Bay Area space for the imagination.
The theme of the festival this year was Resilience. The performances and art installations explored the resilience of nature in the face of climate change and sea level rise as well as human resilience in the face of individual and societal changes. The works have been selected through an open call process, with the help of a jury consisting of local professionals in the fields of arts, education, activism and urban design.
