5:30 - 8:00 Polygonia Work Project: Be a part of one of this year's central art projects for Burning Man. Polygonia's many-colored, many-shaped, life-size building blocks will travel from the DC area to the Black Rock Desert and be set up at four sites near the base of the Man. Burners will use them to build, tear apart and rebuild practical, fantastical, whimsical, climbable structures and sculptures. Bring your work clothes and help us with materials preparation and fabrication. No experience required, just enthusiasm!
PLEASE RSVP here at meetup
If you can't attend the Polygonia work evening between 5:30 and 8pm, preceding the presentation, that is fine, you're welcome to join us at 8 (or later) to get the deets about Burning Man. Due to the inherent challenges with giving a presentation with other wise burners who often feel compelled to join in, we respectfully request that only newbies or people who have been to Burning Man just once attend the presentation. However, all are welcome to come to the Polygonia work evening that is a part of this event between 5:30 and 8pm, its a great chance to interact with people who are new to the community.
Attendees are welcome to bring food or drink to share, this is a Leave No Trace event, we'll need to clean up afterwards.
