Art on the Playa

Each year there are hundreds of works of art out on the playa. Some of it is really big art and some is smaller. Some is commissioned and some it purely a gift from the artist. Some of the art is burned during the week, most is not. Many of us spend our days riding our bikes out on the playa looking at the artwork and then spend even more time biking around at night because the artwork looks completely different under the lights.
