6 Must-See Summer Art Shows

March 30, 2018 - January 21, 2019

No Spectators: The Art of Burning Man • Renwick Gallery • Smithsonian • Washington, DC •

The “playa” comes to the Smithsonian! No Spectators: The Art of Burning Man features the ephemeral art that decorates, enhances, and “makes” the famed Burning Man festival each year. The idea of “no spectators” is integral to Burning Man, as the festival, and now, the exhibit, allows for participation and immersion. VR, technological, and interactive components are key to the Burning Man experience and have been recreated here in this multi-layered Smithsonian exhibit. This is largest Smithsonian exhibit to date as art from this presentation is installed in the surrounding locales of Washington DC as part of this immersive and all-inclusive project.
