   BurningSNOW Center for the Experimental Arts 

2578 North Weil Street, Milwaukee WI 53212 USA. ph. (414) 562-3740


our MISSION:

The BurningSNOW Center is located in an 1500 square-foot live/work facility in Riverwest, Milwaukee. We facilitate the creation and display of works of experimental art, broadly defined as the intersection of technology, arts, and culture.

We serve as a nexus for the growing experimental arts community, with weekly meetings, Build Parties, and open house events. People of all backgrounds and skill levels work side-by-side on imaginative projects that require all their talents.

We foster an atmosphere of de-commodification, where ideas are freely shared, removed from any pressures of vending, advertising, or commercial sponsorship. We maintain close ties to the Burning Man Project and follow their Ten Principles as a model for successful promotion of innovation through the Experimental Arts.
