Burning Man was first put together to reconnect art and life with a crowd of 90. It has now grown into a large-scale venue for new art, now deemed Populist art that draws visitors from all over the world. It's every year at the end of summer and and has is a celebration that includes a Solstice ceremony, a fashion show, dj's and plenty of people roaming in and out of one another's camps doing God knows what. Well..........
Populist Art:  Lowbrow, or lowbrow art,[1] describes an underground visual art movement that arose in the Los Angeles, California, area in the late 1970s. Lowbrow is a widespread populist art movement with origins in the underground comix world, punk music, hot-rod street culture, and other subcultures. It is also often known by the name pop surrealism. Lowbrow art often has a sense of humor - sometimes the humor is gleeful, sometimes impish, and sometimes it is a sarcastic comment.[2]
Most lowbrow artworks are paintings, but there are also toys, digital art, and sculpture.

Here a just a couple of the installations that have been done in the past. Go to to find out more about the event
