CINCINNATI — The highly anticipated special exhibition, No Spectators: The Art of Burning Man serves as the inspiration for Beyond Black Rock—the museum’s new summer fundraising event on Friday, June 7,
7–11 p.m.

The event features live music by DJ Dayna, Swampthang and performances by Pones featuring painted bodies by Aryn Fox, Forealism Tribe and Elevated Aerials. Food from La Soupe, Forno Osteria+Bar, United Dairy Farmers and the Cincinnati Art Museum Terrace Café will be provided in the Great Hall and outdoors in the Alice Bimel Courtyard. A diverse selection of craft beer from Fifty West Brewing Company and Platform Beer Company, wine and cocktails will also be served.

This event takes place on the first day of the second phase of No Spectators: The Art of Burning Man, and it will be the first chance for visitors to see the entirety of the artworks in the exhibition after hours. Party the night away amongst massive, room-sized art installation, mutant vehicles, creative costuming, films and jewelry made for Black Rock City, Nevada, during the annual Burning Man gathering.

Organized and hosted by the CAM catalysts, a group of young professional museum supporters dedicated to moving art forward and curating Cincinnati’s art experience, the Cincinnati Art Museum’s Beyond Black Rock event tickets provide exclusive after-hours access to the exhibition, food from local eateries, drinks, live music and entertainment.

Proceeds from Beyond Black Rock will empower your local art museum to bring dynamic art exhibitions to Cincinnati, as well as support the thousands of free public programs we offer each year including Wee Wednesday, Autism Family Exploration and REC Reads, that make art accessible to everyone.

General admission tickets are $75 per person and are available online and at the door. To learn about donor opportunities, please contact [email protected] or call (513) 639-2962.

In addition, the museum would like to recognize the generous donations from members, supporters and friends who have helped to plan and contribute to this event.
