We are a team of 15-20 local volunteers building a 20' tall sun effigy and community arts project to represent the San Diego region at Burning Man 2011. Quemaduras del Sol represents the sun and beaches of the southwest coast, will be a climbable art installation, and features a center viewing platform between the dual sun faces on each side.

Quemaduras del Sol brings part of San Diego to the citizens of BRC, shimmering day and night over a soft audio background of ocean surf recorded at the many beaches in San Diego. The effigy base is inscribed with messages from the local burner community for the larger community in Black Rock City.

San Diego is bringing Quemaduras del Sol to the playa in 2011 to join many Regionals in the very special CORE project, the Circle of Regional Effigies. This sun will burn for all on playa as part of the great circle of fire on Thursday night during the event.
