Burning Man Annual Art Car Forum

Mister Fusion, Designed and Built by Henry Chang

Thursday, September 3, 2015 from 2pm – 4pm at PlayaSkool, we are hosting a forum for Art Car designers, creators, builders, supporters, and enthusiasts to share their stories and their art work with residents of Black Rock City.   


Mutant Vehicles and Art Cars are one of the most incredible offerings on the Playa.  Ranging from Pirate Ships to Flaming Octopi to Motorized Cup Cakes . . . each are unique, inspiring and an important part of the cultural fabric that makes up Black Rock City. One of the topics several of our speakers will touch on this year is art cars in the default world! Safety is another concern some of our sign ups will address.


Over 30 Art Cars, many talented builders and representation from the DMV will be speaking starting at 2pm Thursday afternoon along the 10:00 corridor & Ersatz.
