Larry Harvey (1948–2018) was an American activist, artist, and philanthropist who founded the Burning Man festival in 1986. Burning Man is a globally celebrated and massive annual weeklong festival held in the Black Rock desert, a free-flowing, artistic, pro-community celebration of anti-business-as-usual.
