Burning Man Beyond the Playa – KQED This Week

This is what KQED had to say about Burning Man, Beyond the Playa:

Every year for one week, bold, super-sized works of art spring to life in a harsh desert playa in Nevada. Burning Man, with hundreds of original works and more than 60,000 attendees, has become North America’s largest outdoor art festival. Host Thuy Vu meets the Flaming Lotus Girls, a female-driven team of Bay Area artists who are pushing themselves to the limit to create an enormous metal tree stump with fire-breathing fungi. Vu also examines how the Burning Man art scene has blossomed beyond the desert, with iconic sculptures transplanted to urban settings and even major civic installations like The Bay Lights.
