Please join the Black Rock Arts Foundation, Burning Man Project and Black Rock City’s Art Department in celebrating this benchmark year of supporting our community’s artists and instigators, both at Burning Man and around the world!
Join us as we graciously acknowledge BRAF Grantees and Civic Arts artists as well as the artists of Burning Man. We have so much to celebrate this year and we want you, our devout supporters, to be there. We wouldn’t have achieved so much without you!
As you’ve probably heard, the Black Rock Arts Foundation has joined forces with Burning Man’s Art Department to create Burning Man Arts, a new program of Burning Man Project. If you haven’t heard this wonderful news, read more, here.
This year’s Artumnal Gathering raises funds for future Burning Man Arts projects.
Come raise a glass with us in a toast to our future as Burning Man Arts!
