Electric Mushrooms and Trippy Butterflies, Burning Man Gets Its Own Retrospective
The best Burning Man art on view
Entertainment 11 Apr 2018

BurningMan1

Burning Man is known to be the mecca for hippie-esque party goers. Roughly 75,000 people venture out in Nevada’s Black Rock desert every summer to dance, party and frolic for the annual music festival. More than just a place to dance, the fest brings public art every year. Now, a new exhibition which recently opened at the Smithsonian American Art Museum puts the best Burning Man art on view until January 21, 2019. No Spectators: The Art of Burning Man features sculptures by artists David Best, Candy Chang, Marco Cochrane, and others. As the curator Nora Atkinson says: “Two of the ten principles of Burning Man are radical participation and radical inclusivity, meaning that there are no outsiders. Everyone is part of the experience.”
