The newly formed Yellowstone Burners in Wapiti/Cody, Wyoming are building an art car for Burning Man which will be serving...water! It will be a 30 foot tall saddle resting on a saddle rack; we call it Saddle Up! and it hosts The Watering Hole saloon.

Saddle Up! We are the newly formed Yellowstone Burners;  a group of collaborative artists in Cody, Wyoming working together to create public art. Our first project will be an art car designed to look like a 30 foot tall saddle resting on a saddle rack.

The base vehicle is a bus and we will transform the interior into a high rolling, old west poker lounge. We will also have a viewing platform on top of the bus which will house The Watering Hole,  an old west gunslingers saloon. While there may be many bars on playa, our saloon will serve...water. We will have a 50 gallon container of potable water on board each day and each night that we go out.

Today,  we need your help.  We are excited to bring this mobile hydration station to the playa and will fill it with as many people as we can safely fit for rides around Black Rock City. We just need the initial funds to get this all started. You will be contributing not only to a great new art car in BRC but to the future of public art in Cody, Wyoming.

We are grateful for every dollar that folks are able to contribute!
