Burning Man has become THE place for celebs to show their cool factor. Last year we had first time visits from P.Diddy, Susan Sarandon, and General Wesley Clark…amongst others.
Actress Rosario Dawson is in a different league, though: she has been to the burn 9 times, and created several art projects for it. The star of “Sin City” built her own major art installation for the 2011 theme “Rites of Passage”: a 30 foot long installation with a penis slide into a misting vagina tent. As you do! Visitors strolled through this misting vagina tunnel, but anyone who missed the g-spot had to make a second trip through. Once you found and pressed it, “a doorbell would ring and lights would flash.”
She has taken to the talk show circuit to
display her hipness profess her love for Burning Man, bringing the heart-warming story to Jimmy Kimmel, Chelsea Handler, and now Conan O’Brien.

Last week’s Conan interview has been taken down from YouTube but you can find it here.
We look forward to seeing more of Rosario’s art at future burns, as well as in the upcoming Sin City 2 – due for release right before the burn, on August 22, 2014.
