On a Burning Man Exhibition

 

I already knew that Burning Man is a big annual event and that it is unique. I didn’t really know what it is – that is the why – but what little I knew sparked enough curiosity to attend a Burning Man traveling exhibit at the Cincinnati Art Museum.

First held in 1986 on San Francisco’s Baker Beach, today’s Burning Man is a unique cultural event exploring artist and self expression, community, and self reliance. Today, tens of thousands gather to form a temporary city in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert built around 10 principles.

Much of the art is large scale – some is interactive. Forms include painting, photography, metal work, mixed media, multimedia, clothing, jewelry, and more. Enjoy my gallery from the exhibition. Any favorites?
