From the famous Bonnaroo Arch at the entrance to Centeroo to the always cool Bonnaroo Fountain, Bonnaroo is covered in colorful landmarks that change ever so slightly to keep things interesting from year to year.
Like the Bonnaroo Fountain and The Arch which are canvasses for expression and theme each year, the wall around Centeroo has been treated as a canvas for two dimensional artist expression of all kinds since the beginning of Bonnaroo. The Wall, like Bonnaroo itself, is an ever changing artistic effort that is propelled by both the participants and the many artists who contribute.
Bonnaroo Poster Art Exhibit
Following in the tradition of the inspired poster makers of the ’60s, Bonnaroo and The American Poster Institute join together to showcase the work of some of today’s most relevant poster makers. With clients including some of Bonnaroo’s biggest headlining bands from past and present, these designers, illustrators and professional magic-makers illuminate the gap between music and art in a stunning display of craft, technique and skill. Come check out the limited edition hand screen posters, chat with these select artists from all over the nation and even pick up a poster to remind you of the spectacular, unique experience that is The Roo. You can find the American Poster Institute right across from the official Merch tent in the Bonnaroo Market. Past artists include Methane Studios, Lil’ Tuffy, Furturtle, Status Serigraph, Powerhouse Factories, Dan Grzeca, and Boss Construction.

The Silent Auction for The Bonnaroo Works Fund
The Bonnaroo Works Community Center will again feature a Silent Auction during the festival, with a diverse offering of artist-signed memorabilia, guitars, Bonnaroo merchandise, stunning photographs, entertainment experiences and much more. All funds benefit the Bonnaroo Works Fund charities.
Bonnaroo Works Fund is the charitable division of Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival. BWF supports national and local organizations that advance the arts, education and environmental causes – with a focus on sustainability and local reinvestment in the areas where we work, live and play. The Bonnaroo Works Fund has provided over $7 million to over 100 well-vetted, deserving causes.
