Trick Out Your Burning Man Bike: Get 2009 tickets now!

January 23, 2009

Woman on Quadracycle by Ed HoffmanDo you have your Burning Man 2009 tickets yet? We bought ours last week the day they went on sale. If you still need a ticket, go here now.

As important as your ticket is your RIDE! Not the one getting you there but the one that will get you around once you’re there! I chose the adjoining photos to inspire you to trick out your ride (quadracycle, tricycle or bicycle!) for getting about town and for joining us on the Playa; they came from a photo gallery by Ed Hoffman.

Is there a Burning Man art project in your dreams?  BURNING MAN ART GRANT DEADLINE FAST APPROACHING – FEBRUARY 1! The deadline for submitting an art grant proposal for Burning Man 2009 is February 1, so do get your proposal together!  Learn more here.

On the playa, we witness how interactive artwork can bring people together, change the nature of our interactions with each other, and challenge our preconceptions of what art can achieve.Bicycle Rim Tree photo by Ed Hoffman

The Black Rock Arts Foundation’s grant program  facilitates bringing this new approach of art-making into communities everywhere, and expose it to people who may never have a chance to experience the art at Burning Man first-hand. Applications for 2009 grants are now available. Applications accepted from February  13, 2009, 9:00am to  March 13, 2009, 5:00pm.

To see a wild off Playa Burning Man type holiday experience, check out the photos and this video from online adventures.

    Cool bananas. I’ll be there next year for burning boats and tesla coil madness. I think I’ll need a chaffeur ridden bicycle though.

    This Burning Man event is sooooooo cool. Can we bring it to our little community here in Forestville? We could really use a heartbeat and some culture here.

    brad, people DO bring “burning man” home–bringing BMANesque events and art to their local communities. apply for a BRAF grant and see what happens!

    but part of what makes “the” Burning Man such an amazing event is the Black Rock desert’s immenseness…

    be fun to have you both camp with danika and i and who knows who else! so get your BMAN tickets and flights and we’ll figure it out from there!

    Burning Man, isn’t that in the Utah salt flats?? How does one survive the heat and need for water and ‘elimination’? Just askin.
    Thanks. Betty.
