Burning Man art in the “real” world

During the time that I studied Burning Man, artists built large pieces for the event but then could not find a permanent place for them. Adequate storage space is a problem, and museums and other institutions may not have the capacity or desire to properly care for items. Nevertheless, some of the artworks that debuted at Burning Man have now found more permanent homes, where they can be appreciated by even more persons.
I’m very pleased to report that one of the artworks featured in a black and white photo in my book now resides in Toronto, Canada. For Flickr images of Michael Christian’s sculpture Koilos in a mainstream, urban setting, click here.
