Burning Man has officially been around for just over 3 decades and within the last few years, the event or…movement as some would like to call it has greatly risen in popularity. The week long event gives new meaning to community and artistic self expression with it's inspiring and often thought provoking art installations. It should then be no surprise that some of Burning Man's most inspiring installations will now be on display at the Smithsonian in Washington D.C.
The art installation titled, ‘No Spectators: The Art of Burning Man’, will run for 9 months and will be located at the Smithsonian's Renwick Gallery on Pennsylvania Avenue at 17th Street NW until January 2019. Nora Atkinson, the museum’s Lloyd Herman Curator of Craft, organized the exhibition in collaboration with the Burning Man Project – the nonprofit responsible for producing Burning Man. Some of the artists featured in No Spectators: The Art of Burning Man include David Best, Candy Chang, Marco Cochrane, Duane Flatmo, Michael Garlington and Natalia Bertotti, and Five Ton Crane Arts Collective among others.
