Our friend and founder Larry Harvey has passed away, but his vision for a more creative, cooperative and generous world lives on. From Baker Beach to the Black Rock Desert and beyond, people inspired by Larry’s vision have brought the Burning Man ethos to six continents and created a global, year-round community of passionate participation.
At the request of friends of Burning Man we have created the Larry Harvey Art and Philosophy Fund to honor his legacy and keep fueling the fire he started more than 30 years ago. The Fund will support art projects, philosophical endeavors, and other work that reflects Larry’s love of new ideas, both playful and profound. Your contribution will help ensure that this important work goes on, helping to spark positive change in the world for many years to come.
"People often approach me in the desert, asking if I ever thought that our event would grow to be so large. Lately I have learned to look about, taking in everything around me, and say I think this is a good start. Anyone at any time can be a founder, and we invite you to join us."
