Burning Man at the Nevada Museum of Art in Reno

July 6, 2017

Want to experience Burning Man without actually going out to Black Rock City? Well, there is no real substitute for the real thing, but you can get a good feel for the life of this iconic Nevada festival right here in Reno at the Nevada Museum of Art. Two Burning Man exhibits will be featured from July 1, 2017 through January 7, 2018.

City of Dust: The Evolution of Burning Man – This exhibit explores the evolution of Burning Man from its beginning on Baker Beach in San Francisco to the event we have today in the Black Rock Desert north of Reno. “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.”

View from the Playa: Photographs by Eleanor Preger – From Incline Village, Preger has been taking Burning Man photos for years. Her work will be displayed in the Nightingale Sky Room atop the Museum.

The opening celebration for “City of Dust: The Evolution of Burning Man” will be on Thursday July 6, 2017, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Come as your playa persona, enjoy live music and see the Nautilus Submarine art car. It’s $10 general admission, free for Museum members.

During the run of these exhibits, there will be a whole series of related talks and Art Bites. They begin in July and continue into December. Check the Museum Calendar of Events for dates, times, and other details.
