For the first time ever, explore the remarkable story of how the legendary Nevada gathering known as Burning Man evolved through collaborative ritual from humble countercultural roots on San Francisco’s Baker Beach into the world-famous desert convergence it is today. Never-before-seen photographs, artifacts, journals, sketches, and notebooks reveal how this temporary experimental desert city came to be—and how it continues to evolve.
This exhibition is organized by the Nevada Museum of Art.
Many of the items included are drawn from the archive collections of the Center for Art + Environment at the Nevada Museum of Art.
