No Spectators: The Art of Burning Man arrived at the Renwick Gallery at the end of March, in a flash of fantastic color (we spent hours exploring David Best’s Temple, laying on the floor in Christopher Schardt’s Nova, and trying to make the popcorn machine work in Five Ton Crane Arts Collective’s Capitol Theatre).

The first floor of the exhibition is coming down in September and we couldn’t let that happen without giving it a final celebratory send off in a way that only BYT and Smithsonian American Art Museum can.

Therefore – we invite you to:
