Help us make this journey a reality.
Thank you for all your support. Stay tuned for updates about our wonderful group project, after we bring it to life on Burning Man 2022.
After his successful art installation "Wings of Glory", a giant flying, moving fiery pegasus towering over Burning Man 2019, Adrian Landon has invited a group of artists from various backgrounds to join him in a new project. Through an open call, artists were invited to propose an outdoor public horse sculpture, on the subject of the plight of Nevada ecosystems and how wild horses are being impacted. Many amazing designs were submitted, from which a dozen have been selected to be produced.
Each of these life-size (or larger) horse sculptures will be made by an individual artist, in their own artistic aesthetic. Together, these life-size or larger horse sculptures will form a herd. Free-standing, built to withstand permanent outdoor exposure, severe weather, and safe and structurally sound enough to be climbed on while on public display.
The exhibit will make its debut at Burning Man 2022 (August 28 th through September 5 th ), with all sculptures thereafter having the potential to be installed throughout the city of Reno and Sparks between September 2022 and June 2023. In collaboration with the Sierra Arts Foundation (SAF), and the Coalition for Healthy Nevada Lands (CHNL), all sculptures will go on auction in 2023. Proceeds will benefit the preservation of the local wildlife and plant ecosystem.
This project has received a Honorarium for the production of the sculptures from the Burning Man organisation. We still need help with the realisation, so please have a look at our Fundrazr page. Be a part of the art project and ecosystem protection efforts! Every little bit helps.
The purpose of this exhibit is to raise awareness and fundraise to further education on the impacts and solutions to the overpopulation of wild horses in the American West. This overpopulation not only hurts the ecosystem, but the horses themselves as well. We stand firm in the position that horses, other herbivores and predators and the local plant life need to be brought into balance in a thoughtful way. This requires education and awareness of the issue first and foremost. To learn more about the intersection of the land, wildlife and horses, please visit www.healthynvlands.org
