    Burning Man: Art on Fire Presentation and Book Signing

    Thursday August 14, 2014 / 6 – 7 pm

    Join author Jennifer Raiser and photographer Sydney Erthal for a celebration of the new book Burning Man: Art on Fire. Every August, tens of thousands of participants gather to celebrate artistic expression in Nevada’s barren Black Rock Desert. This vastly inhospitable location, called the playa, is the site of Burning Man, where, within a 9-mile fence, artists called Burners create a temporary city devoted to art and participation. Braving extreme elements, over two hundred wildly ambitious works of art are created and intended to delight, provoke, involve, or amaze. Burning Man: Art on Fire is an authorized collection of some of the most stunning examples of Burning Man art. Experience the amazing sculptures, art, stories, and interviews from the world’s greatest gathering of artists. Get lost in a rich gallery of images showcasing the best examples of playa art with over 200 photos.

    Impossible Light

    Sunday August 17, 2014 / 3 – 4:30 pm

    The San Francisco–Oakland Bay Bridge opened in 1936 and was almost immediately overshadowed by the Golden Gate Bridge, which opened less than a year later. A dull workhorse next to a glamorous star, it seemed the Bay Bridge would never outshine its sister to the north. Artist Leo Villareal’s light installation on the Bay Bridge changed that almost overnight. Impossible Light provides an inside glimpse at how a small team of visionaries brought The Bay Lights to reality. (70 minutes, unrated)
