Artist Duane Flatmo created his sculptural vehicle Tin Pan Dragon out of cookware. It’s part of the Renwick Gallery’s new exhibition, “No Spectators: The Art of Burning Man.” (Marvin Joseph/The Washington Post)
The exhibition traces the more than three-decade evolution of an event that has morphed from a bohemian beach gathering in San Francisco in 1986 to the modern-day 68,000-person pop-up city in Northern Nevada's Black Rock Desert each year.
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.
