The global pandemic continues to create barriers in how our local burn communities interact and bond. Art- the creation and sharing of- is the cornerstone of what we do (and why we push ourselves so hard) and it would be a shame not to continue to build, express, and share. To continue the tradition of art while upholding the need for social distancing practices, we will be bringing Burner Art Safari back for 2021.
Presenting: The Burner Art Safari
An art tour experience shaped by these interesting times.
**This art tour is open to EVERYONE and ANYONE, EVERYWHERE. We support radical inclusion, period**
Art Grants and Support
The Ignition Philter art grant program is now closed for Memorial Day 2021. Looking forward to seeing the pieces that were funded this year!
For additional support for projects participating in the Memorial Day event, artists may list their crowd sourcing links, requests for materials/supplies, hands, etc., on the Art Projects Seeking Support page.
Show Your Art
Do you have art in your front yard or another publicly accessible location (i.e. visible from the street) that people can view from the comfort of their cars or the safety of the sidewalk that you’d like to share? Excellent!! Please
Thank you so much for being part of this experience! Art registration will be open until May 24th 11:59pm CST.
Memorial Day Event
Submissions for the new Burner Art Safari experience occurring May 27-31st is open! You can register art just for part of the event, all of the event, and if your art is staying up you have the option to have your piece included in the year round map!
We are using the new year to update our permanent displays map as well. If you have art that is displayed throughout the year please use the form above (under Memorial Day Event) and choose the "permanent" option to let us know it's always available. We may add a different link in the future just for permanent displays. Permanent pieces would then just be uploaded to the year round map.
Educate Your Local Community
If you choose to share your art, consider adding signage that helps your friends and neighbors know a little bit about what the Burner Art Safari is and the community that is driving it. These interesting times provide us with a unique opportunity to educate our neighbors about burner culture and spread the word. An updated template will be available soon!
Before you click on the map, please note the following:
DO NOT Trespass- Please don’t waltz into anyone’s property uninvited. Stay in your car/on your bike/on the street/sidewalk. If you happen to see someone, feel free to wave and thank them- don’t go ringing doorbells or charging them for conversation. Please do not insult their gift to the community by crossing boundaries. Social distancing is important.
DO NOT Touch The Art- This is not an invitation to mess with people’s art. Touching other people’s stuff is not respectful and clearly not in the spirit of social distancing.
PHOTOGRAPHY- If you see a sign near the art specifically asking you not to take pictures, don’t.
Maps are being updated for the new year. Check back for links to maps.
Sharing is Caring
Spread the word! The Burner Art Safari team is committed to adding projects to the map regularly (when it's not down for service). Tell your friends, campmates, community about this experience if you so choose. The more art, the better!
For inclusion on this main, global map, please note that the art must be accessible to everybody- there must always be a "free" way to share in the experience.
If you are participating (or have participated) in the burner art safari and would like a photo of your art included in the gallery below, please contact us.
