From March 30, 2018 to January 21, 2019, the Smithsonian American Art Museum (DC) featured the “No Spectators: The Art of Burning Man” exhibit at the Renwick Gallery. Along with many other artists and their mediums, a piece of my graphic art was included in this exhibition to showcase the artistic history of Burning Man. On April 26 to September 2, 2019 the exhibition moved to The Cincinnati Art Museum (OH). From there, it moved to Oakland Museum of California (CA) from Oct 12, 2019 to Feb 16, 2020. (Photos, bottom)
