Known as Kepler 452b, it circles a sunlike star in an orbit that takes 385 days, just slightly longer than our own year, putting it firmly in the “Goldilocks” habitable zone where the temperatures are lukewarm and suitable for liquid water on the surface — … [Continue reading...]

In 1986, Larry Harvey instigated the now-renowned Burning Man festival on a renegade creative impulse on a San Francisco beach. This creativity was the spark that led to the 30-year evolution of the annual festival that Larry has aesthetically and philosophically shepherded through its transformation into a non-profit organization, and a global force for creative culture on six continents and in more than 50 countries.
Artist, NAC member and 15 year Burner Kate Raudenbush, began attending the event in 1999 in the Black Rock Desert, Nevada. In 2004, on an inspired whim and thanks to her first Art Grant from Burning Man, Kate began her first step in an uncharted creative journey, which evolved with Burning Man funding her many creations of intricately crafted, … [Continue reading...]
