Today we visited the Smithsonian’s Renwick Gallery which has an exhibit on Burning Man. We had wanted to see folk art but it has been preempted by Burning Man. We were prepared to leave, but the docents outside the door encouraged us to check out the exhibit.
One interesting piece which is about 1/5 the size of the actual piece at Burning Man.
But overall I think our first instincts were correct and match those of some critics.
