RENO, NV - The downtown Reno Arts District will be bustling every first Thursday of the month as restaurants, businesses and galleries open their doors for Art Walk Reno.

See the works of local and regional artists on display in venues within the Arts District, between Liberty Street and Second Street, and Virginia Street and Arlington Avenue.

There are at least 20 venues to visit, including Liberty Fine Arts Gallery, Sierra Arts Gallery, and Metro Gallery inside City Hall. Alternative venues, such as Outsiders Hair and Salon, Noble Pie Parlor, Singer Social Club, and The Neapolitan Gallery inside Ampersand, will be rotating local and regional artists monthly.

The University of Nevada, Reno will also be a strong participant with its fairly new off-campus gallery, ArtSpace. It's located inside the West Street Market complex.

“Reno is a city building a platform for national and international attention, solely on the strength of its art and culture community,” said Eric Brooks, art walk coordinator. “It is an ongoing movement with support centering from local government and constantly being strengthened from within by small businesses throughout Reno that are showcasing local artists on their walls.”
