Don't Hate the Playa 

Wednesday, Jun 5 2013

Going to Burning Man for the art might sound kind of like reading Playboy for the articles, but the fact remains: Playboy has some good articles, and Burning Man has incredible art. Last year's burn included a dizzying array of interactive sculptures, a multi-story mock-up of Wall Street (watching that go up in flames was pretty cool), and a life-sized model shipwreck. Get a peek at what's in store for the Playa this year at the Burning Man 2013 Desert Art Preview. The preview is part of Burning Man's annual artist lecture series, and is moderated by the ever-present $teven Ra$pa. The evening will open with a discussion of this year's art theme, "Cargo Cult" (also called "The Myth of Return"), and then proceed with a series of presentations from the artists themselves. Speakers include Beth Scarborough, Crimson Rose, the International Art Megacrew, and the Flaming Lotus Girls.
