And they really need your help. This time, they’re not asking for a donation. Just, if you’re gonna get free schwag at Burning Man, accept it in the form of gifts from Burners only: don’t take any of BMOrg’s shit.

Sometimes, when the citizens of Black Rock City are confronted with a challenge, they turn it into an art project. This, ladies and gentlemen, is one of those times.
The street signs that adorn every corner of BRC are not only beautiful, they’re functional. Not only are they functional, they are critical to public safety. When that ambulance is looking to find YOU, they need to know what street they’re on. SO DON’T REMOVE STREET SIGNS!
Now, despite what we say, we know it’ll happen anyway. So let’s solve this with an art project! Here’s how …
Adopt a street corner in your neighborhood, and augment the street sign with aesthetically pleasing, informative signs of your own making!
We’re calling this the Adopt a Street Sign (ASS) project, because we’re 12-years old.
Radical Self-Expression, meet Communal Effort. BOOM. Make babies.
Translation? BYO street signs, because BMOrg’s ones are probably just going to be stolen, and their budget doesn’t stretch to backups. Pity BMOrg couldn’t have announced this new
policy art project earlier in the year, so Burners waiting for tickets could have applied their creative energies to something more useful.
