Art And Sculpture At Burning Man
Burning Man is a free-for-all libertarian representation of different art forms. Everyone is welcome, and the breadth of art displayed is intriguing and continually changing. Throughout the week, you’ll overhear someone talking about a new installation that wasn’t there the night before, and you’ll bike a mile out onto the playa to try and find it (which you might not). Considering that most artists do not receive grants, and many have to foot all of the installation and transportation costs themselves, the quality is high; and where the “quality” is lacking, it’s still generally unusual and enlightening. Some people spend many tens of thousands of dollars to display their art here, and all just to be an integral and participating part of the Burning Man community.

Garden path of glowing bouquets
Glowing forest on the cracked lakebed, with The Man in the distance behind
