It's that time of year again. It's hotter than ever at the tail end of August, so it's time for 50,000-plus artsy, party-going types to gather in the Nevada desert for the Burning Man festival. It's a gathering centered around free love, community, and lots and lots of art, and while it may be hotter than blazes (usually -- this rain heavy rain storms delayed the event), it's supposed to be a really good time.
Tragically, it didn't end so well for one artist in attendance. 29-year-old Alicia Louise Cipicchio was killed at Burning Man on Thursday, after being struck by a bus near Center Camp in Black Rock City, the temporary city constructed every year for the event. She was a manager at an art gallery in Jackson, Wyoming, and is said to have loved the outdoors.
