Every year thousands of enlightened human beings travel from all over the planet to the Black Rock Desert in Nevada to participate in the Burning Man gathering. There is anything and everything there including many large scale art installations that take years to build sometimes. At this year’s gathering, there will be over 400 such art installations set up all over the desert area. While the Burning Man organization is very supportive of the arts on the “playa,” it is only partially funding about 1/7th of all the installations this year.
This means that all other art installations rely on community support, both for the building and financing. With Burning Man beginning in a month, there are still a few unique projects that are in need of funding to make their dreams a reality. Check out some of their crowdfunding campaigns below and if you can support them and their art, please do! And if you are considering attending Burning Man this year for the first time, please read the First Timers Guide.
