Desert Arts Preview: An Invitation to Get Inspired  

Jumpstart your excitement for Black Rock City and the art that defines the landscape because Desert Arts Preview is back! As you anticipate the return to playa, get inspired by a fantastic collection of spectacular, wild, and whimsical art installations. Burning Man Arts is thrilled to invite you to our beloved and exciting event Desert Arts Preview on Sunday, June 4 at 1pm Pacific / 4pm Eastern / 10pm Central European. Step behind the scenes and join our featured artists for virtual tours of their studios and creative process, and gain insights into their inspirations and hopes for their works in progress. 

Come learn how you can get involved and support these and other artists at the Burning Man event to create interactive, collaborative, and community-generating artworks. Tune in from anywhere for this virtual celebration, and meet our presenting artists who will be joining us from around the globe. You can also host a watch party to enjoy the program with friends and family.

After the main program, you are invited to join an afterparty in BRCvr where you can immerse yourself in even more art and mingle with the artists and other participants. BRCvr can be enjoyed on any browser or by staying on Zoom for a guided experience. Visit BRCvr for more info!
