Burning Man Art For 2021 Is A 'Go'


In this latest announcement from Burning Man they say (among many other things) that they are committing to fully funding art now, even though we don't yet know if Burning Man will actually happen on the Black Rock Desert this year. This means that probably some (or possibly all) of the art will actually end up being displayed somewhere else in the world.

Theseus Fighting the Centaur Bianor
"Theseus Fighting the Centaur Bianor" by Antoine-Louis Barye
. This is probably at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC, but I don't guarantee that. The Met says it's in Gallery 548 ("European Sculpture and Decorative Arts"), but the background of my photo is not Gallery 548 and a Google walk-through of Gallery 548 reveals no Theseus fighting any centaur. But if someone would like to go to the Met and pinpoint its actual location, I would be delighted to know.

View of Downtown Boston from Alewife Station, Cambridge, Mass (BW)
A view of the skyline of downtown Boston from Alewife Station on the Red Line.
I think the very white steeple you can see towards the left part of the downtown skyline is a church that used to stand in Porter Square. You can see the Federal Reserve building on the righthand part of the skyline.

A lot of slides from around 1987, mostly

Chicago Architecture - Kodachrome - 1987
Chicago, Kodachrome, 1987.

Allerton Hotel, Chicago - Kodachrome - 1987
Also Chicago, Kodachrome, 1987.
This is probably the last time I saw this sign on the Allerton Hotel. I had always wondered if the Tip-Top-Tap was still a going concern or was it just too expensive to take down those letters. But that was before the internet. Now I can find out without having to actually go to Chicago and ride an elevator to the top. The Tip-Top-Tap opened in the 1920s and closed in 1961. It is used now as a ballroom or meeting room for private parties, but the bar is gone.

Chicago Buildings - Kodachrome - 1987 (2)
Chicago, but I can't identify these buildings
. The sleek one is not the Willis Tower. This is 1987 (Kodachrome again). If anyone can identify these buildings please leave a comment or email me.

Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum & fern

Robie House, Oak Park - Kodachrome - 1987
The Robie House by Frank Lloyd Wright in Oak Park, outside Chicago. 1987, Kodachrome.

Reserve Channel, Boston - Ektachrome
The Reserve Channel in Boston on Ektachrome, early 1980s.
When I lived in South Boston in the early '80s, I worked downtown at 100 Summer Street, so most mornings I would walk to work (a couple miles) rather than suffer the crowded bus. This was along the way and almost always offered a photogenic view. But it never changed much, either. Sometimes a ship would tie up and stay for more than a year.

Royal Hawaiian Hotel, Honolulu - Kodachrome - 1986
The Royal Hawaiian Hotel on Waikiki Beach, Kodachrome, 1986.

View Of MIT Across Charles River - Kodachrome - 1987
On the Charles River Esplanade in Boston looking across the river at MIT in Cambridge.
Kodachrome, 1987.

Vietnam Memorial, Washington - Kodachrome - 1987
My first visit to the Vietnam Memorial Wall on The Mall in Washington, Kodachrome, 1987.
I was quite impressed with the feeling of grief that grows to almost overwhelming levels as I walked down into the memorial and the walls rose higher than my head.
