Silent and live auction proceeds directly support Art and Civic Engagement programs that nurture a global spectrum of projects and partnerships inspired by the art and community of Black Rock City and beyond. Programs include Honoraria Art Grants providing $1.3M to projects coming to Black Rock City, Art Support Services to help artists install their pieces on playa, Civic Arts helping to place Burning Man art beyond the playa, Global Art Grants that foster participation and creativity through public projects around the world, the Regional Network, Burners Without Borders, and more. Last year we raised over $200,000 in the silent and live auctions to support Art and Civic Engagement. Your generosity can help us exceed that amount this year.

If you have questions about the auction contact us for more information.
