Burning Man

Burning Man is an annual conceptual art event hosted in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert in Pershing County; it focuses on art, self-reliance, expression of oneself, and the community. The event is termed as a city where everything is created by its citizens. It has been held annually since 1991.

The event owes its moniker to its climax ceremony, in which a giant wooden effigy (fittingly named “the Man”) is burned symbolically during the final night of the art affair. It is organized by the non-profit organization Burning Man Project, which also runs similar programs like Global Arts Grants, Black Rock Solar, and Burners Without Borders.
