Dear Beloved Ones!

We hope everyone is happy and healthy during these uncertain times. We are so disheartened that we will not be building Axolotl or Black Rock City in 2020!    We are looking forward to making 2021 the best year ever.  However, before we get there - we need to raise some funds to help maintain our art car so it's as happy as ever when we build her in 2021. 

Last year, we launched our beautiful new website, and are now finalizing building an online store where we trade camp donations for Axolotl gear and other fun items.  Currently, we have many onesies available but we intend to expand our inventory as the year goes on.  Though we are always thinking about improvements to the art car - this year we are striving for status quo - to keep everything in good shape and cared for during the long winter.  We will be providing Axolotl a better home for social distancing - a place inside at it's home in the Black Rock Desert.  We will also be maintaining sound systems, interior upholstery and other yearly 'wear and tear' issues.   With our powers combined, Axolotl will be as strong as ever when we return in 2021. 

Please donate here -- and also check out the website -- which also includes information about how to volunteer and collaborate, as well as to learn about and get involved with efforts to save and regenerate the amazing creature and its ecosystem.  We intend to expand our fundraising for this creature in 2020-2021 - it's regenerative properties are just what we need these days.

We are so excited to bring this magnificent creature back to the playa in 2021. This art car will once again spew fire,  light up the night skies, and create  magic with collaborations involving art installations, live musicians and DJs from around the world.

It is time to dance, and the Axo will be well fed and beautiful.  Love is in the Air!
