If you ever find yourself in the Nevada desert between the end of August and the beginning of September, you may discover that you’re not alone. Deep in the Black Rock Desert, the festival Burning Man is held every year as a celebration of life, love, and creativity. Since its inception, the festival has only grown more and more popular as its themes of art, selflessness, and community pervade the world around us.
Everyone who attends is encouraged to contribute something to the event, and we can think of no more fitting way to lend a hand then with a brush. In addition to better janitorial services, artists and sculptors can make use of all our brushes to make some of the many installations that are part of the festival. There are brushes on RV’s to help keep the dust down as well as brushes used to mark art placement on the playa. There have been giant brushes to mark public restrooms and countless uses of brushes on the amazing art that is displayed there. One of the pieces this year was a giant wild boar, which seemed rather fitting since we make brushes with boars hair. Other pieces we noticed involved toothbrushes, scrubbing bubbles, and even a giant vacuum cleaner.
One of these days we would like to create a sculpture made entirely out of brushes. Please let us know your thoughts and ideas below.
