The Art and Build of Burning Man

BY BEAU TURNER
@ VOL 18 ON MAR 10, 2018

Beau Turner and 70,000 of his closest friends build a city every year in the desert. His local group was also responsible for bringing the first exhibition of the Art of Burning Man outside of the festival to our area. Conversations lead to conversations that lead to next endeavers to design and construct the Mega Cake, to celebrate everyone's birthday at the next Burning Man.

As a side note, there is now going to be an Art of Burning Man exhibit at the Renwick on the Mall in Washington DC. Well done.
