    David Best on Building Sacred Spaces

    Thursday October 26, 2017 / 6 – 7 pm

    Internationally-renowned American sculptor David Best and a group of friends first built a sacred temple out of reclaimed wood and waste from a local toy manufacturer at Burning Man in 2000. Since then, he has been involved in the design of 9 temples.  Best explores the important collaborative and participatory nature of his works and the experience of planning, building, and burning these hallowed spaces to the ground in an emotional spectacle of light and heat.
