Smithsonian Burning Man Art Show Moves to the Midwest

Post by some seeing eye » Thu Apr 25, 2019 8:42 pm

The Burning Man art show that started at the Smithsonian Renwick in Washington DC opens in Cincinnati, Ohio April 26 at the Art Museum https://www.cincinnatiartmuseum.org/. It goes to Oakland in the Fall.

Cincinnati is an old river town with a very large suburban expansion, very into professional sports teams and very conservative. The city has recently been experiencing a renaissance with young creatives moving into rehabbed buildings in the central city and creating scrappy alternative art spaces, increasingly rare in the Bay Area. It's like Detroit, but at an earlier stage and more economical today than Detroit to live.

They installed the individual pieces through the galleries intermixed with the permanent collection, most of which is very old school classical.

Here is all the fawning prepress:
