Art of Burning Man: View Images


The Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian American Art Museum, in collaboration with the Golden Triangle Business Improvement District (BID) and with support from Lyft, is bringing artworks from the legendary desert event Burning Man to the streets and parks of Washington, D.C.’s central business district for the first time. No Spectators: Beyond the Renwick presents six public art installations by noted Burning Man artists. The unique partnership marks the first time the Renwick Gallery will expand beyond its walls into the surrounding Golden Triangle neighborhood. The project is an outdoor extension of the Renwick Gallery’s building-wide exhibition No Spectators: The Art of Burning Man, which will feature large-scale, immersive artworks that are the hallmark of the annual celebration in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert, an influential phenomenon in contemporary art and a cultural movement.

The exhibition will be on view from March 30, 2018 through Jan. 21, 2019, with the outdoor portion on display through December 2018. 

The Renwick Gallery and the Golden Triangle BID will present related programming around the neighborhood to further engage audiences with the art and spirit of Burning Man. This will include walking tours along with other participatory and community activities. A map will be provided at the Renwick and online for self-guided tours of the outdoor installations.
