Global Celebration and Day of Gratitude for Larry Harvey – The World – June 21
In the bay area there are lots of options. From 3:00 to 7:00 pm, East Bay Burners and Burning Man Project are co-hosting a get-together at the Lake Merritt bandstand in Oakland. The free-to-the-public spontaneous outdoor piano gathering PianFrancisco will be honoring Larry through music at the top of Bernal Hill from 6:00 to 9:00 pm. No matter how you’re participating, if you feel moved to share it online, mention Burning Man and use the hashtag #thankslarry, so your Facebook live-streams, photos, videos or whatever else may be shared on larry.burningman.org and via social media. If you’re planning a memorial event for June 21, please send the details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
“If you bring a little soul to the encounter, maybe you’ll see something you didn’t look for; maybe you’ll open your heart a little, and see things that you didn’t imagine.”
Our founder, friend, and original instigator, Larry Harvey has passed away. Larry was a visionary, a mentor, a philosopher, and a passionate advocate for Burning Man’s culture and principles. We have lost our founder. The world has lost a great human being.
