Kate Raudenbush is a New York-based, Burning Man-bred sculpture artist and designer. She learned early on to creatively adapt to her surroundings as her family relocated 6 times to 4 different countries by the age of 14, where she observed clearly that “the most unifying and uplifting identifiers of our global humanity are its cultural expressions. What we cherish and what we create represents who we are. Art is a conduit through which humanity understands itself.” Once an intern for Mtv, and then a professional photographer in the theatre and entertainment worlds of New York City, she shape-shifted again through transformational playa dust and creative community to reinvent herself as as a self-taught sculptor, becoming one of the most prolific solo female artists at Burning Man since 1999. Kate evolved to create the first Burning Man sculpture to be collected straight from the desert and into the permanent collection of a US museum, the Nevada Museum of Art, in 2007. Since then, she has sought to challenge herself to roam an unconventional creative path: from a remote artist residency near the Demilitarized Zone in South Korea, to the creation of a monolithic gateway sculpture leading to the Tesla Gigafactory in Nevada, to designing a massive winged soundstage in Amsterdam for Mysteryland, the longest running EDM festival in Europe.  In 2019, she received the National Citizen Artist Award from Americans for the Arts at the U.S. Conference of Mayors in Washington DC. She used her award speech to encourage US Mayors to mobilize and shape their cities to address climate change. Kate’s words and work have been published and exhibited in shows from the record-breaking No Spectators: the Art of Burning Man exhibition at the Smithsonian Museum in Washington DC, to the Hangaram Art Museum in Seoul, South Korea, to red carpet sculptures for the American Film Institute Film Festival in Hollywood. Allegorical artworks have been created for international art fairs from Scope in Miami and Art SouthHampton, to festivals and civic squares in Las Vegas, Santiago Chile, Montreal Canada, Tulum Mexico, Lake Tahoe, Reno, Washington DC, San Francisco, and New York City. Kate has made two TEDx talks about creativity at Burning Man and in Tulum, Mexico, as well as spoken at the Smithsonian Museum of American Art, the SFMoMA, and the NMA. She has been featured in the New York Times, The London Times, Rolling Stone, Current TV, Intel IQ, and on the cover of CODAworx Magazine’s Architectural Art issue, among others. She was a World Technology Network Nominee for the Arts in 2016, and her art has been featured in several books about the creative culture of Burning Man, including the Taschen publication The Art of Burning Man, The Burning Book (Simon & Schuster), and on the cover of Burning Man – Art on Fire. She was recently featured in the creative vanguard of artists in the 2020 documentary film Burning Man: Art on Fire. Yes! She has happily burned her artwork––with pyrotechnics.
