Did you know that the Oakland Museum of California has a really bad-ass exhibit right now called No Spectators: The Art of Burning Man? Well they do! And what makes it even cooler is that, on select Thursdays, they are staying open late and turning it into a party with food, drinks, and much more. And the very first one is this Thursday, November 14th!

Stay up late and marvel at the spectacular artworks from one of the most widely-celebrated cultural events in the world, alongside the artists who helped shape it. Explore amazing art installations, view creative costumes, and learn more about Burning Man’s origins in this multi-sensory exhibition. Don’t miss the West Coast debut of the first major museum exhibition of its kind, and join in the celebration of Burning Man’s deep connections to California and the Bay Area.

The immersive and multi-sensory experience extends beyond the gallery walls into the Museum’s public spaces—including an OMCA-commissioned 40-foot-tall outdoor temple by internationally-acclaimed sculptor David Best. The exhibition features many works by Bay Area artists including jewelry, costumes, “mutant” vehicles, sculptures, photography, and paintings. The companion exhibition within the gallery, City of Dust: The Evolution of Burning Man, organized by the Nevada Museum of Art in Reno, traces Burning Man’s origins from its countercultural roots in the San Francisco Bay Area to the world-famous desert gathering it is today.
