The Eiteljorg Museum’s Buckaroo Bash, which will be held Oct. 20 at the Indiana State Fairgrounds, will host world-famous artist and entertainer Michael Israel. Israel has shared the stage with famous faces such as Clarence Clemons and Bruce Springsteen. His unique performances blend a unique artistic talent with a spectacular stage performance.

Israel creates paintings on stage while the crowd watches on. He leaps; launching splashes of color across a canvas revealing larger-than-life images as rock music plays in the background. His one-of-a-kind artwork includes music legends; patriotic images; TV and film stars; as well as custom designs pertaining to specific charities. Israel graciously agreed to create a custom painting for the Buckaroo Bash, which won’t be revealed until the end of his performance at the event. Israel’s performances are described as a rock concert with Israel and his painting taking center stage.

Israel is not only an artist and entertainer, but also a humanitarian who has painted and presented at some of the world’s largest venues including the Olympic Medals Stage in Salt Lake City, UT, and presidential events in Washington, DC. He has raised millions of dollars in support of many notable charities.

See Israel in action.
