At the launch of the 2016 Season, Artpark and LB Mason Fine Art, LLC
(424 Center Street, Lewiston NY 14092) announced a partnership showcasing the vibrant, unique, and jaw dropping artwork of Philip Burke
, a Buffalo born artist. Burke's work has adorned the pages of major publications, including Newsweek, Vanity Fair, Vogue, Time, and Rolling Stone Magazine, to name a few.
Burke contributed to Artpark's Children and Family Programming by producing several live painting events at select Amphitheater concerts and designed the season identity as used in the 2016 Artpark Brochure.
Philip Burke's collaboration with Artpark blurs the line between fine art and great music. His bold interpretations of rock and roll icons have caught the attention of music fans and critics alike. Rolling Stone Magazine honored Burke as a "Featured Artist" for an astounding 7 years. In addition, The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the mecca of music artifacts, proudly displayed Burke's paintings for countless museumgoers to enjoy.
Philip Burke once said "When I was a teen in Buffalo, I wanted to be a rock star, but I couldn't play any instruments and I was too shy to sing. So, I put my dream into painting and drawing rock stars".
