Each year the weeklong Burning Man event attracts over 70,000 people to Nevada's Black Rock Desert. Participants create and build Black Rock City, a temporary metropolis where experimental art installations-some ritually burned to the ground-are the centerpiece for innovators, makers, and a burgeoning artistic community. At this special exhibition - No Spectators: The Art of Burning Man - view some spectacular artwork and large-scale installations. Explore works by Bay Area artists including jewelry, costumes, "mutant" vehicles, sculptures, photography, and paintings. Learn about Burning Man's origins, from its counterculture roots in the San Francisco Bay Area to the world-famous desert gathering it is today.
