Burning Man

Burning Man is an annual gathering of approximately forty thousand people in Nevada's Black Rock Desert the week before Labor Day. Journalists, scholars, and filmmakers who have chronicled Burning Man agree that the event defies classification. It is a unique phenomenon, predicated on a level of spontaneity that borders on anarchy. The nature of the event may vary from year to year or from person to person, emphasizing both the individual and communal experiences.

Western Folklife Center

In 1980, the Utah Folklife Center, under the direction of Utah State Folk Arts Coordinator Hal Cannon, expanded its focus beyond the Beehive State's borders and became the Western Folklife Center in Elko, Nevada. Cannon remains the Founding Director. The Western Folklife Center's mission is to study, preserve, and perpetuate the rural culture of the West.
