The art that's out on the playa in Black Rock City is an integral part of Burning Man. This year, artists from around the world have constructed pieces that run the gamut from large to small, including wood structures, paintings, and more. Our reporter Paul Boger spoke with Anabel Romero from Los Angeles who is part of a crew that has created a large wooden structure called Aluna as well as Harvey Branscomb of Colorado, who helped bring a piece called the Mammoth Art Car to Nevada.
