No Spectators: The Art of Burning Man Virtual Reality Experience

The Smithsonian American Art Museum, in partnership with Intel, is sending the digitized wonder of No Spectators: The Art of Burning Man on the road. No Spectators brings the large-scale, participatory work from this desert gathering to Smithsonian Affiliate museums around the country via Virtual Reality. This immersive 3D experience allows visitors to “see” this exhibition at the Renwick Gallery in Washington D.C. Find the VR “pod” in the Rockwell Museum parking lot during Urban Arts Crawl – first come first serve.
