Meeting Dana Albany

This weekend I went to San Francisco to visit an artist who I was lucky enough to meet with – Dana Albany. She has been creating art and bringing it to Burning Man since 1999, when she entered her first piece, a tree made from skulls from various animals that she called “The Bone Tree”. Since then, she has been creating sculptures from found objects specifically metals. Her artistic style when it comes to this medium is extremely skillful, creative, unique, and breathtaking. She would be the perfect addition to the creation of the exterior skin structure of this sculpture. Cory and her son Sagan, who was the youngest person to bring art to Burning Man came with us to make the introduction. We got to see her studio, her sculpture called “The Gatekeeper”, and other artist’s work around the city. I had an amazing time and I think she is interested in working with us! I really connected with her and she would be happy to teach me the tricks of the trade.
