Eyes on Art Program

Eyes on Art is the team responsible for surveying art installations across the open playa and identifying potential safety issues including art projects, unlit construction sites and exposed rebar. Eyes on Art maintains a real-time, radio-dispatched response team that spends each night of the event until 4AM checking different areas and installations for problems.

Mission Statement

As a safety team within the Art Department, EoA’s mission is to patrol the playa starting build week and throughout the event looking for dark, dangerous and unregistered Art.

We focus our efforts on educating and reinforcing the guidelines for creating art on playa. We strive to keep art and the people experiencing the art safe.

With a large scope of skills and resources our team aims to serve Black Rock City as a whole. Eyes on Art work to make the playa safe at all hours. Through education and accountability we work with artists to create and maintain safe art installations on-playa.

EoA coordinates its work with many of the BRC’s departments including (but not limited to) the ARTery, Rangers, Heavy Equipment, Art Support Services, and DPW.
