Reno’s First Sculpture Festival

Reno’s First Sculpture Festival

May 8th to 10th, 2015 ~ This year a collective of Reno Artists lead by Aric Shapiro created and hosted Reno’s first Sculpture Festival. A 3-day event in downtown Reno filled with big art… interactive spaces, and live music. It is so exciting to see the how Reno has embraced and supported the arts. In 2007 Burning Man partnered with the city of Reno to bring Burning Man are to the city. It started with the Mangrove Project which consisted of 11 trees made out of recycled materials and stayed up for 3 months.

And each year the city brings more big art to the spaces and place for the general public to enjoy and engage. For more details check out Reno Sculpture...
