GALLERY

Liberty Revolution and its signature art form Fire Inside have evolved from a series of occurrences at the epic, annual Burning Man gathering in Nevada. A collection of monuments has evolved within the "Burning Community" through a series of public events and exclusive showings for over a decade. Here is a look into the rich past of this mesmerizing new art form and how it came to be a powerful ritual. If you haven't noticed, we love art, fire and Liberty, combining them and sharing them between the two communities is what Liberty (R)evolution is designed to do.
