Leary-halo

Susan Sarandon participated in Burning Man in Black Rock Desert, Nev. on Saturday to distribute the ashes of close friend and late LSD advocate Timothy Leary, according to USA Today.

The actress marched with Leary’s remains into a special church, which was built as one of the many art displays during the seven-day event. The gothic cathedral structure was later set aflame with other art creations (including a 60-foot giant man) in a spectacle that left crowds in awe.

“When I went to Burning Man last time, that’s when I thought I’d bring him back here. I think he’d be so happy.”

Most of Leary’s ashes were sent to outer space in 1997, but Sarandon kept a small amount that she saved for a special moment. The actress worked with Burning Man and photographer Michael Garlington to lend a creative hand during the weeklong festival.

“When I went to Burning Man last time, that’s when I thought I’d bring him back here,” said Sarandon. “I think he’d be so happy. I think he would have loved the chaos [of Burning Man]. He would have loved it and all these people honoring him with LSD.”…(read more)
