    It is time to make another visit to the Renwick Gallery. Now through September the gallery is hosting an exhibit featuring the art and artists that participated in Burning Man.

    What is Burning Man? It is an annual festival held in the Nevada desert each Labor Day that celebrates creativity, playfulness, inclusive community and radical self expression. The week long festival provides artists with an opportunity to exhibit their whimsical sculptures. A handful of artists were invited to create smaller versions of their art which are now displayed at The Renwick.

    The exhibit is very kid friendly with several hands-on opportunities. You can contribute to the conversation and answer the question, Before I Die…, make giant mushrooms move or take a virtual trip to Burning Man.

    Photos are encouraged and there are lots of postable shots.  Be sure to pick up a map on your way out and look for the six sculptures scattered on the streets near the gallery.
