The sculpture "Passage," installed at San Francisco's Pier 14
Burning Man spin-off The Black Rock Arts Foundation, a nonprofit devoted to promoting community-based exhibitions of interactive art and supporting the artists and organizations that create it, is sponsoring a six-month installation of the sculpture "Passage" at San Francisco's Pier 14, beginning June 16. The piece was one of the many artworks dotting Nevada's Black Rock desert during Burning Man 2005.
Dan Das Mann and Karen Cusolito's "Passage"

In November, Michael Christian's "Flock" was installed near City Hall. The Black Rock Arts Foundation and the San Francisco Arts Commission also teamed up to bring artist David Best to town to build one of his trademark temples at the foot of the city's lovely new Octavia Boulevard.
