Bernie at Burning Man 2015- John Valentino
Bernie, the jester-trailer-hybrid, John Valentino’s 3rd art installation with the NOLA burning man community, met and kissed the dust! We love you Bernie! Before the burn they held a a ceremony to announce to the world that we are done with the whole “Oh, you’re from New Orleans? Are you recovered from Katrina yet?” mentality. The canvas sides of the float were peeled back to reveal our sins, Burnie will be decapitated, his head was transported back to NOLA for the Nola Burner Decompression. Thanks to everyone who helped get Bernie built, transported and burned!
