A Burning Man Tour of San Francisco Public Art
By: Dan Rosenbaum
As more than 50,000 people descend on utopia in Black Rock City for Burning Man, they will undoutably be surrounded by creative and original art from around the world. As a nod to Burning Man's past (it started on sands of Baker Beach just south of the Golden Gate Bridge more than 20 years ago), art from years past have made their way back here and are now public for everyone to see. So for those of us who won't make it out to the Nevada desert this year but want to see what it's all about, take a stroll through San Francisco and get a glimpse of the wonderful public art the city has to offer, courtesy of SF Gate.
