FROM DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE

[A quick Editor's note: correcting a previous error, Will Chase's Reddit AMA takes place August 12 at 3pm PDT. Onward!]

Art is everywhere at Burning Man. In every theme camp, every street, every nook and cranny of the expansive open playa — from Center Camp to the Man to the deepest point of the city's perimeter — you'll find art. In fact, everybody at Burning Man is art, including YOU (see Halcyon's sage advice on this point).

That's part of what makes our city so special: everywhere you go, you're neck-deep in of one of the most fantastic (and fantastical) art experiences ever conceived. And the best part? A lot of it involves FIRE. In fact, there's going to be over 100 open fire pieces this year (counting burbling fires, blasting poofers and gigantic conflagrations) ... and that's a LOT, people.

Also, we will have the most interactive Man Pavilion to date, including a Midway filled with dozens of engaging, interactive performance experiences!

At final count, there are 378 pre-registered art pieces, the largest number ever — and there will undoubtedly be more to come during the event. There are some amazing pieces coming to the playa this year, and if you want to bring your own artwork, it's not too late — read on to learn more about how to go about it. EVERYBODY'S art is welcome at Burning Man, including YOURS.

The Man burns in 25 days!

What's the ARTery?

The ARTery is the on-playa headquarters for Burning Man's art department, facilitating the process of getting your art on the playa. To learn about all that they do (and don't do), see the ARTery information page.

Want to Bring Your Art to the Playa This Year?

If you haven't registered your art with us yet, and you want to bring it to the playa, you still can!

Download and fill out the art registration PDF and bring it with you to the ARTery, found on the Esplanade & 6:30.

Art Tours!

The ARTery offers a variety of art tours. Pick one that's right for you:

Guided Art Tours
For those in need (e.g. you can't get around to the artwork yourself on foot or by bike), there are art tours that depart on a bus daily from "Everywhere Pavilion", right next to First Camp at 6:15 on the Esplanade. These limited seats are first-come, first-served, and designed to help those who are mobility-challenged see the wonderful art of the playa.

Tours run Tuesday through Friday starting at 11am. Tickets are handed out the day of the tour, beginning at 9am at Everywhere Pavilion. Check in at the ARTery for additional details and tour availability.

Self-Guided Paper Tours
The ARTery also provides written tours you can pick up at the ARTery and create your own tour! Lead a tour with your friends — take 'em around in a pack of bikes, or do a tour with your Mutant Vehicle.

Bike Tours
Tuesday-Friday, once a day at 10am, weather permitting. Meet in front of the ARTery and ride your bikes as volunteers from the ARTery provide information on curated art pieces, as well as the Temple and the Man.

Audio Art Tours
The ARTery's Jim Tierney (aka Anarchist Cowboy) has once again produced an awesome audio art tour featuring great behind-the-scenes information about many of the Honorarium art installations. We'll post a link to the MP3s in an upcoming JRS ... stay tuned.

Don't Lock Your Bike to the Art

This may sound stupid, but (well) every year people lock their bikes to art installations ... as if they were giant bike racks. Which they're not.

Sometimes this results in a) the lock being cut before the piece is burned, or b) the bike being burned with the piece. Neither is cool.

Avoid this situation by — guess what? Right. Not locking your bike to the artwork.

Done and done.

Respect for the Art: It Goes Without Saying, But ...

We hope you'll help us with this one. Unless you made it, don't vandalize artwork.

Yeah, we know "it's Burning Man, maaaan ... don't harsh my mellow ... it's my creative expression, maaaan!" Yeah, no. Messing with somebody else's art isn't cool — unless of course they expressly imply that their piece is meant to be messed with, written on, etc.

Having created art, this Rabbit is here to tell ya: it blows when somebody else vandalizes your work. So please, help keep an eye on the artwork and treat it with respect, and if you see someone tagging, vandalizing, manhandling or climbing something fragile or unsound, or heaven forbid, stealing a piece of art, do your part and talk to them, or contact a Ranger if you're not equipped to deal with it yourself.

There's plenty of room on the playa for everyone's art and expression without us having to do it all over each other's work.

Support an Art Project

So you'd like to help out with an art project, but you're not sure how. Well, you can gift your services, skills, time, resources, or funding. There are plenty of projects in need of assistance. Here's how to find them:

Support Your Temple! Fund the Temple of Promise

The Temple of Promise crew needs your help to build Black Rock City's most sacred structure this year. They're in the home stretch, and they can't do it without you.

Please make a tax-deductible donation to the Temple. They still need to raise about $10,000, and Burning Man is around the corner.

Donate to the Temple of Promise now.

Thank you for your contribution to our city and our culture!

Burning Man Art Show at Reno-Tahoe International Airport

Flying into Reno on your way to BRC? Things might start to feel a bit like Burning Man as soon as you land!

Starting on August 13, the Reno International Airport will be hosting a gallery featuring art from a few stellar Burning Man photographers. George Post, Eleanor Preger and Sidney Erthal will be showcasing images from the playa between August 13 and mid October.

Art on the Way to the Playa

The rest of the year, our Burning Man Arts program is busy bringing unique art experiences to communities off the playa. You can see a great example of this in Fernley, Nevada, where Burning Man Arts worked with the City of Fernley to install three works of public art. In 2012, our Civic Arts program received its second National Endowment for the Arts grant to fund this project.

Two of the works in Fernley are by artists you might recognize from their art on the playa: Zach Coffin (known for his massive rock sculptures,) and Max Poynton, Andrew Grinberg and their crew. The third work is an original piece, The Desert Tortoise, collaboratively created by artist Pan Pantoja and the children of Fernley (in fact, every young student in Fernley made a tile for the Tortoise!).

See Zach's Rockspinner 6, Max and Andrew's Bottlecap Gazebo, and The Desert Tortoise at Fernley's Main Street Park, 610 East Main St., Fernley, Nevada.

If you're passing through Reno, stop by and say hello to Bryan Tedrick's Portal of Evolution, recently purchased by the City of Reno. You'll recognize Portal from Black Rock City in 2009, and from its stay in front of Reno's City Hall in 2012-2013. Now it's at the east end of Bicentennial Park, 10 Ralston St. in Reno.
