Revel in the power of human creativity with this completely revised and expanded edition of Burning Man: Art on Fire, illustrated with over 250 gorgeous color photos.

For one week a year, a remote desert lakebed in Nevada becomes Black Rock City, the home of Burning Man, where 80,000 participants create a temporary community devoted to expression and play. There is no money, no running water—and there are no constraints. Artists bring enormous sculptures for participants to climb. Outrageous Mutant Vehicles glide through an opulent mirage. This is a dreamscape of permission. For seven days and nights, the artistic movement of our time materializes—and then disappears without a trace.

Welcome to Burning Man. Welcome Home.

This authorized collection also includes:
  • Over 150 new photographs and descriptions of individual pieces of Burning Man art from over two decades, including art from the 2022 Burning Man event
  • Over 32 new pages featuring incredible sculptures and Mutant Vehicles
  • A fully updated text, which considers Burning Man's evolving significance in the art world, and how Burning Man is the art movement of our time
  • A foreword from Burning Man CEO and Co-Founder Marian Goodell
  • A new epilogue about the growing importance of Burning Man art beyond Black Rock City, including museum exhibits, public art, and over 100 regional Burning Man events worldwide
  • A tribute to Burning Man Founder Larry Harvey, with highlights of his philosophical approach to art

  • This stunning visual tribute is perfect for Burners, artists, creative thinkers, and anyone who has ever imagined a visit to Burning Man, one of the most extraordinary places on earth.
