From Baker Beach to Black Rock City, a Conversation on Burning Man
On the Summer Solstice in 1986 Jerry James and Larry Harvey built and burned an effigy at Baker Beach in San Francisco. Today Burning Man is an international phenomenon. In August of 2019, 70K people participated in creating the annual, temporary community known as Black Rock City 100 miles north of Reno. BMan has also spawned a growing list of ‘regionals’, spinoffs held all over the US and around the world. Jerry will discuss and share images of that 1st day at Baker Beach and the four years the event was repeated and enlarged there before being relocated to the desert. He will be joined by local master jeweler Paul Delathauwer, creator of stunning pendants featured at many BMan special events, and Peter Hazel of Reno, creator of the large art pieces Octavius and Bloom at BMan in recent years. Yet to be confirmed is Marcia Crosby, a full-time BMan staff member for 20 years. The group will participate in a conversation on all things Burning Man including Q&A with the audience.
