Desert Arts Preview is a beloved and exciting evening where artists will share the projects they plan to bring to the Burning Man event in 2019. Presenters will share their inspiration and hopes for these works in progress, giving the audience an exclusive window into their imagination and creative process.

This is also the perfect opportunity to learn how you can get involved and support these and other artists at the Burning Man event and year-round, as we increasingly seek to create interactive, collaborative and community-generating works of art in cities around the world. Come and learn how to get involved and help make the art you wish to see in the world.
