On September 17, 2020, after 5 years in the making, the experimental retail and performance complex Area15 is finally open. The mysterious artistic place where you can admire the artistic installations from previous editions of all the well known Burning Man festival is located less than two miles from downtown Las Vegas. Anyone who has ever come into contact with Burning Man has certainly not passed indifferently from the accompanying artistic environment – monumental sculptures, art installations, steel statues, or famous wooden effigy.
Area15’s founder, Michael Beneville, who already visited the festival 10 times said to Artnet:
Burning Man is its own very special thing. It’s 68,000 of the most creative people on the planet coming together to build something that’s just extraordinary. I’m humble enough to know that we would never try to recreate Burning Man.
Complex’s Art Island is now a home for arts created especially for the event in the Black Rock Desert by artists from around the world. In Area15 you can already admire such eye-popping arts like the 14-foot-tall polished steel statue by Michael Benisty and the neon-lit owl sculpture made by Alchemy Arts. The 26-foot-tall Mariposita, a woman emerging from a giant egg which was one of the highlights of Burning Man 2019 will be moved to the complex soon.
