Reno’s Rockin’ it! Celtic Forest Opening Reception, Free Workshop & Lecture

Previously exhibited at Burning Man 2008, Celtic Forest, by artists Laura Kimpton, Jeff Schomberg and Bob Hofmann, is unique in its materials (metal and fire), scale and artistic vision. Fire will glow weekly from the Book of the Raven and surrounding tree-like candelabras with fire dancing by Controlled Burn.
