16 years of fire and art rising from the sands of Burning Man

"Embrace" burns at the Burning Man 2014
ARIZONA---There's not a lot in Black Rock Desert, and there hasn't been for 10,000 years. Sandstorms are frequent and there's a noticeable lack of creature comforts, like roads and water. But in this patch of wasteland creativity and human endeavor flourish each summer, as a city of 60,000 people rises from the dust. Burning Man Festival, a gathering "dedicated to community, art, self-expression, and self-reliance," say organizers, has taken place annually since 1986. [link]

Festival Dates: August 30-September 7, 2015 - Burning Man – Black Rock City, NV
