Black Rock City is a cultural art gathering and societal experiment of 40,000 plus people in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada undertaken each year by the Burning Man organization. This week-long gathering and event is held around Labor Day each year (please see www.burningman.com).

The centerpiece of the exhibit is a 180-degree panoramic-view time lapse of the rise, week-long event, and dissipation of
Black Rock City—the Burning Man gathering, presented on three 50”, high-resolution plasma displays. This innovative time
lapse project consists of thousands of high-resolution sequenced images taken over a 21-day period by 3 cameras arranged
 in a 180-degree view of the Black Rock Desert of Nevada and captures Black Rock City as it emerges from the desert, the week-long event, and its dismantling, all in a 40‑minute program, synchronized and set to music. 

The Foundation and Exhibition honor  Burners without Borders with a selection of photographs by Burners without Borders members Lisa Benham, Tony Garcia, and Tom Price.

Also featured in the exhibition is a selection of 130+ large-format photographic prints taken by nine exceptionally talented photographers, who were selected by the Foundation to participate in its Large-Format Digital Photographic Print Studio Program. The participating photographers are: Michelle Bates; Lisa Benham, Tony Garcia, and Tom Price from Burners without Borders; Jason Day; Matt Freedman; Richard Gilmore; Marcel Peelen; Mary Rachel Reynolds; Philip Solomonson; John W. Tucker, Jr; and Joshua Weaver. Seven of the nine awardees came to the Foundations facilities in Berkeley, California some from as far a field as Canada, Florida, and Washington as Artists-in-Residence, each for a three- to four-day residency. They had access to the Foundations Large-Format Digital Photographic Print Studio and were provided, in addition to room and board, the needed materials and supplies to print and mount their selected works of Burning Man Black Rock City . With hands-on instruction and guidance from the Foundations president, Joshua Reichek, each photographer (3 of the 7 assisted by their significant other) printed and mounted their own work. 

The exhibition opened on Friday, May 30, 2008.  An opening party with delicious free food, wine and cheese was held on Sunday, June 1, from 1 pm to 5:30 pm.  The party was a resounding success - over 400 attendees. There was several hours
of fire performances and poi-hoop-staff spinning and a large drumming circle - and even an art car, by Freddie Hahn of the Black Rock Arts Foundation,

The exhibition runs through August 3rd. The exhibition is open Fridays Saturdays and Sundays from 1pm to 5:30pm, or by appointment. Admission is free. The Marin French Cheese Factory is located at 7500 Red Hill Road, Petaluma.
