City of Dust: The Evolution of Burning Man

For the first time ever, explore the remarkable story of how the legendary Nevada gathering known as Burning Man evolved from humble countercultural roots on San Francisco’s Baker Beach into the world-famous desert convergence it is today.  Burning Man’s founders open their vaults to share never-before-seen photographs, artifacts, journals, sketches, and notebooks revealing 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. 

City of Dust will travel to the Renwick Gallery, Smithsonian American Art Museum in spring 2018. > Read More
