This is our very popular annual artist lecture series, where you get a sneak preview of some of the many notable art projects in progress right now for Burning Man 2012. You’ll hear directly from artists who are creating revolutionary works of art, often in radically collaborative ways. Some have been doing work on the playa many years and will be sharing humorous war stories associated with creating art under extreme conditions. This is also a great opportunity to learn how YOU can get involved and support these and other artists and projects.

If you can’t make it, look up their projects at the link below and directly contact these and other artists/projects you feel inspired to help and work with. Get involved and help make the art you wish to see in the world! Read more »
