Rainbow Maker's World

Making Natural Rainbow Events for Fund Raising and Publicity

The Rainbow Maker

I am Fred Stern, an artist who makes natural rainbows in the sky. I make an artificial rainfall with large pumps which refracts the sun's light to create rainbows as large as 2000 feet across.

I have made over 50 rainbows around the world in an attempt to make our world a better place, and will travel anywhere in the world for the right cause..

A natural rainbow in support of a fund raiser for health issues, or to promote an environmental cause or political event is so unique that it always has large attendance and receives major media coverage.

The Rainbow Maker has Worked With

the American Cancer Society Relay for Life, Make a Wish Foundation, Camp Sundown, The Alzheimer's Association, U.N. Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, Portland Blues Festival, Stockholm Water Festival, Hague Appeal for Peace, Israel and Gaza Peace Conference, Burning Man, and the Colorado River Tribes protesting the placement of a nuclear dump site on sacred land.

I also work with Major Cities, Festivals, Public Relations Firms, Film and Television Producers. Commercial Clients include Coca Cola, Ikea, and Nippon TV.

Burning Man Rainbow August 2014

I discovered an innovative technology for creating rainbows using high pressure water at the Africa version of Burning where I created a natural rainbow over their Statue.Based on this piece, I was invited to Burning Man in Nevada to create a natural rainbow over the Man.

Joined by a brilliant support team I created natural rainbows on both Monday and Tuesday afternoons using only 18 gallons of water on each day, not a drop of which touched the ground making it Burning Man Compliant.

Rainbow Over the U.N. Building

In 1995 in conjunction with National Japanese Television, I created a rainbow over the United Nations building as a visual metaphor for world peace using a New York City fire boat. In placing a rainbow over the U.N. building I raised the planet's flag above the flags of all nations symbolizing world peace coming before national allegiance

Camp Quality Rainbow

Camp Quality is a camp for children with cancer. I created a large scale natural rainbow at several camps which the campers walked through to joyously discover what is at the at the end of the rainbow. My life has forever been changed by these courageous Children.
