Santa Cruz To Be Represented At Burning Man 2014 With A Huge Wave Art Structure
An homage to the ocean 75 Foot Long By 18 Foot High

Cruz the Wave is a Santa Cruz, CA based art project destined for Burning Man 2014. The project will capture the power and beauty of a breaking wave and transport it to the middle of the playa. At 18ft high and 75ft long, constructed of wood and lit by LEDs, the project will be the largest wave this dried up lake has seen for thousands of years.

Even though Santa Cruz has had a lot of artists that display their art at Burning Man individually, this is the first time Santa Cruz is represented as a community.

“This is the biggest art piece I have ever built”, said Bob Marzewski (Wizzard), who is known for The Mayan Tricycle a huge art installation he built for Burning Man 2012.

“This is the first time our region will be represented, so we decided to introduce Santa Cruz to Burning Man with something big”, said Wit, “It is an homage to what we all hold dear, the ocean”.

The project has already begun construction, but we have a long way to go. We need your help! Volunteers for construction, help with fundraising and donations of any amount are greatly appreciated.
