    Harrod Blank in Conversation with Philo Northrup on Wild Wheels: Celebrating the Art Car

    Thursday August 24, 2017 / 6 – 7 pm

    Harrod Blank has been making and documenting Art Cars for 35 years.  When he brought his art car “Oh My God!” to Burning Man in 1993 he also began filming on what would become an epic film project about the event 25 years in the making.  Harrod established Art Car Camp in 1994 and over the years transportation at the event has changed immensely. Join Harrod to explore the Art Car legacy on and off the playa, in conversation with Philo Northrup, who co-founded ArtCar Fest with Harrod in 1997.
