Las Vegas Burning Man community comes together for art project Downtown...

Burning Man, the hugely successful event that takes place in the middle of the Black Rock Desert north of Reno every year, is a cross between a rave, a shamanic spiritual quest, arts festival, concert and costume party. The City of Reno has embraced the Art of Burning Man by having exhibitions and public art that is exhibited before the big festival in August.

For a small group of Las Vegas based Burners, as they are known as, the itch to bring this amazing art form to this Radiant City has come. This weekend the Las Vegas based regional group of burners will be having a fundraiser at the Arts Factory to help them finish the great effigy that they will create and take to Burning Man.

Come down to the Arts Factory and check out what these Burners are creating, I am most certain it will knock your (bunny)ears off!

CORE stands for “Circle Of Regional Effigies” and involves 24 individual Icons brought in from around the world that will burn in the largest organized art burn ever attempted, anywhere!
