Breckenridge International Festival of Arts

The 2019 festival will feature a variety of eco-minded performances and exhibitions, including new commissions by Rotterdam-based Sicilian artist Giuseppe Licari, American art collective The Canary Project (Susannah Sayler and Edward Morris) and Danish artist and designer Thomas Dambo who returns to Breckenridge to create a new wooden troll sculpture. In addition to outdoor installations, trailside concerts and open-air cinematic events, BIFA will also present gypsy folk band DeVotchKa in support of their new album, multimedia artist DJ Spooky (Paul D. Miller) in a musical exploration of geological phenomena, and renowned vertical dance company BANDALOOP in a series of site-reactive performances around town, including a premiere work on a 14,000-foot iconic Colorado Rocky Mountain. The full BIFA schedule will be announced in May.

Funding for BIFA is generously provided by the Town of Breckenridge and the National Endowment for the Arts, with media support from Mountain Living.
