Art Projects Seeking Support Page 2022

Looking to help make art go? Check out the Art Projects Seeking Support page on the Burning Flipside website!

The page acts like a community bulletin board- if an artist is looking for various kinds of help (participation, donation, other logistical assistance) they’ll post an ask and you can connect directly with the project/artist. Get it!

Burner Art Safari & Virtual Burn 2021

Burner Art Safari 2021

Aaaand here we go- we have a MAP!

Poke around, click on the “flags” for titles and details of the individual art pieces. Some pieces will be available 24/7 from Wednesday May 26th to Monday morning May 31st, and some for only part of the time, some are permanent pieces that will stay on the year-round map, some have special time sensitive events listed in the notes, etc.- check out the descriptions for more info and make your plans accordingly. 

You may have noticed that this map has grown and spread- once Memorial Day is over and as we slowly unwind from the pandemic, permanent pieces will stay on the map for all your globe trotting, road tripping needs. Please feel free to spread the word to your communities so this map can keep growing and getting better.

Have a publicly accessible piece you’d like to share? Awesome- you can get details about Burner Art Safari, get a link to the map, and register your piece on the website: https://burnerartsafari.org/

DO NOT Trespass– please don’t waltz on to anyone’s property uninvited. Stay in your car/on the street/sidewalk. If you happen to see someone, feel free to wave and thank ‘em- just don’t go ringing doorbells or charging them for conversation. The people and projects that are interested in interaction will tell you- ASK FIRST.

DO NOT Touch The Art– This is not an invitation to go messing with people’s art. If the art was meant to be interacted with, they’ll let ya know.  

PHOTOGRAPHY- If you see a sign near the art specifically asking you not to take pictures, don’t. 

VIRTUAL BURN

– Bigger & better Minecraft burn & discord chat

– Altspace (BRCvr) burn

– Streaming DJs, parties, activities, burns

– Anything else you can digitally dream up!

The theme was voted on by the community… So, naturally, it’s NSFW. At least it’s clear this ain’t no corporate sponsored event! We are so eager to play with you!

Art Safari and Virtual Flipside

Burner Art Safari

Burner Art Safari is currently being organized to host the 2nd annual event over Memorial Day weekend. Last year was completely incredible: the community set up around 50 projects in a matter of days for the art tour map for Burners and the general public to enjoy. The event was not just well loved here in Central Texas- it inspired dozens of similar events across the globe. 

We’re in the middle of making some changes to the website and organization- Art Registration will be open March 15th and will close Monday, May 25th. Sweet, sweet normalcy. There are no geographical restrictions- last year’s Safari included a piece displayed in the UK! Please feel free to panic, but joyfully. Visit the website now for general info, but come back on March 15th for the full details.

Art Grants and Support

Ignition Philter- There will be art grants!

Ignition Philter is happy to support this socially distanced art safari event. 

-$2,500 has been set aside for approximately 10 grants, with a maximum grant of $250 per project.

-The grant application is now open and will close the evening of March 31st. We can’t wait to see what you have in store for us!

-More information (as well as the application form) can be found here:

https://forms.gle/kDYMJuL8FdmuLZRb6

If you have any extra questions please email us at ignitionphilter@gmail.com

Additional Support for Art Projects

The Art Projects Seeking Support page on the Burning Flipside website (normally used as a bulletin board for Flipside bound art projects, this year for projects that will be shown during the Burner Art Safari)  will be available for artists seeking support. You are welcome to share your crowdfunding links, requests for materials, (socially distanced and responsible) hands, etc. on through this resource for art you are creating for the Burner Art Safari.

Virtual Flipside


Last year there were some really fun and exciting virtual experiences. Misty and Seph helped head Flipside Minecraft and they’d like to do that again as well as expand into other virtual realms (namely Altspace, and video/audio streams).  They’re looking for digital collaborators such as:
* pre-event builders in minecraft
* streamers for sharing the digital (or physical) spaces with others
* DJs, VJs, and entertainers for shows, music, visuals, etc.
* a 3d-modeler for a few projects
* alt-space help: either a Unity dev with time to make a space, or someone with connections to find a good space
* greeters / tech-support to help new-comers learn the digital ropes
* anything and everything else digital (especially if it can be streamed as audio or video)
* admin to help monitor and highlight the central video call where video/audio feeds of all the above (and more) will coalesce.

If you are interested in participating in these efforts, please reach out via email: solipsistparadox@gmail.com — subject line: “Virtual Burn”

Burner Art Safari 2020

The community provideth. As promised here’s the map for all your self-guided, socially distant, burner safari needs. Poke around, click on the “flags” for titles and details of the individual art pieces. Some pieces will be available 24/7 from Thursday May 21st to Monday morning May 25th, and some for only part of the time, have special time sensitive events listed in the notes, etc.- check out the descriptions for more info and make your plans accordingly. 

If you were hoping to participate and haven’t had a chance to “register” your art project yet (clearly visible from the street), please read the blog and complete the form. It might take a minute, but we will add your art to the map throughout the weekend. 

DO NOT Trespass– please don’t waltz on to anyone’s property uninvited. Stay in your car/on the street/sidewalk. If you happen to see someone, feel free to wave and thank ‘em- just don’t go ringing doorbells or charging them for conversation. Social distancing is important. 

DO NOT Touch The Art– This is not an invitation to go messing with people’s art. Touching other people’s stuff is not respectful and clearly not in the spirit of social distancing. 

PHOTOGRAPHY- If you see a sign near the art specifically asking you not to take pictures, don’t. 

KFLiP, The Voice of Pyropolis will be on the air for Virtual Flipside 2020! Our community has come together to create 4 days of programming, starting at Thursday Noon and going until Monday about 2pm.

Burner Art Map Submission

Do you have art visible from the street? Would you like to share? A couple of community members are organizing an art map designed so that burners can enjoy a self-guided, social distanced art tour from the comfort of their car. The “tour” lasts from Thursday, May 21st until early Monday morning, May 25th. Think of it like a little Burner Art Safari. Pith helmet optional. Costumes always encouraged.

Here’s a quick teaser of the preliminary map:

If the piece is better viewed at day or night, or will only be available for set hours, etc., please include that information in the description and/or notes.

Location: if you prefer not to post your actual address, be sure to add specific instructions on where the piece is located (example: 1000 block E. Applegate Ln, North Side, middle of the block).

Artist’s/Participant’s names and emails will not be shared on the map. The title of the piece, location, area, description (and notes, when applicable) WILL be included.

If you would like to participate, complete this quick form, preferably before Thursday (although we will take later submissions, those will be added much more slowly): https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScid9FA_6CohfsyOww_V2fNH5s-YsiFcg3erVl8iXe616ID3A/viewform?usp=sf_link

If you know an artist who would like to play, feel free to share this link with your friends and campmates.

The link for the actual map will be released sometime Thursday morning. If you choose to join in the self-guided tour, please remember that these pieces are on private property. Do NOT trespass (stay in your car or, if you are on foot or bike, do not leave the street/sidewalk) and do NOT touch the art. Please maintain above standard social distancing practices.

Looking forward to checking out all the awesome art! Thanks for playing!
