Is Burning Man an expression of San Francisco, or has Burning Man re-conceptualized San Francisco? While the first gathering took place on the city’s Baker Beach in 1986, today’s global celebration of art, music and creative community is an ethos very much alive throughout the Bay Area and in San Francisco year-round. Experience these lights fantastic any night you like – then shoot and share your images using #illuminatesf.
This urban oasis known as Hayes Valley’s Patricia’s Green will be home to a new installation by native San Francisco sculptor David Best, who is primarily known for his Burning Man festival wood sculptures. Appointed by the San Francisco Arts Commission in partnership with Burning Man, this year commemorates the 10th anniversary of Best’s first Hayes Valley Temple piece in 2005 at the same location.
