    Painters, welders, muralists, and performers all create Reno’s art scene — a year-round exhibition as vivid and varied as the landscape it calls home. Inspired by the high desert expanse of the Great Basin to the east and the 10,000-foot peaks of the Sierra Nevada to the west, Reno’s art community is eclectic and energetic. It surprises with mind-bending Burning Man installations and avant-garde outdoor performance art. It astounds with world-renowned rotating exhibits at the Nevada Museum of Art. Reno’s vibrancy and natural landscape attract audacious artists and traditional masters, who showcase their work in galleries, museums, art schools and workspaces throughout the city. Take a tour of Reno to see the wealth of art the city offers.

  • Experience an antique automobile in its native habitat, or discover a new corner of the universe at one of Reno’s many museums. Other museums can captivate toddlers to octogenarians with exhibits on monster-sized prehistoric fish and the human body.

    The Nevada Museum of Art is the oldest cultural institution in the state, and the only art museum in Nevada accredited by the American Alliance of Museums (AAM). In addition to a thematic permanent collection—Altered Landscape Photography, Art of the Greater West, Contemporary Art, and Work Ethic—the four-story building on Liberty Street houses a museum school, a gourmet restaurant, and the internationally- acclaimed Center for Art + Environment. An impressive roster of national and international artists regularly rotate through the museum’s halls and galleries, including works by Ugo Rondinone, Maya Lin, Andy Warhol, Frida Kahlo, and Rembrandt.

  • Art inspired by Nevada’s landscape and history, works by local artists, and collections from artists all over the world appear in Reno’s art galleries. You can find these artistic caches at locations like the University of Nevada, Reno; City Hall; artist co-ops; and privately-owned collections.

    Galleries Stremmel Gallery Founded in 1969, the award-winning building was designed by the Mark Mack architecture group, and the steel and interior design was led by Tutto Ferro. Specializing in contemporary American art, The Stremmel Gallery stands as a beacon in Reno’s MidTown District. The gallery displays paintings, drawings, and sculptures by mid-career and established American and European artists.

  • Dickerson Road Between the river and the rails lies an artistic wonderland. Travel west on Second Street, beyond Keystone Avenue, where the street winds and turns into Dickerson Road. Suddenly you’ll be immersed in Reno’s industrial arts district — a hidden oasis of water gardens, nature studies, warehouses and artist workspaces for sculpture, pottery, painting, and welding.

    MidTown District Located in the heart of Reno, you’ll find many eclectic businesses re-purposing historic homes to create a commercial corridor in the MidTown District. Museums, galleries, boutiques, artisan eateries and friendly watering holes line the streets. The exterior walls of many buildings display art created by Reno’s talented muralists.

    Riverwalk District The Riverwalk District follows the Truckee River and is the epicenter of Reno’s art scene. At the heart of the district is Wingfield Park, the host of many summer concerts and festivals. In July, the tree-lined greens host events nearly every day and night during the city’s month-long art celebration — Artown. But art isn’t confined to the park or the month of July. Throughout the year you’ll find murals on buildings and public art installations on the streets of the Riverwalk District. Even the bike racks get into the spirit with locally-crafted designs.

  • To further nurture Reno as a creative environment, many vacant industrial warehouses have been renovated to fit the needs of area artists. On Dickerson Road a triad of makerspaces offers a variety of workshops and mediums. Local artists create sculptures, paintings and more at Reno Art Works. At The Wedge Ceramics Studio pottery wheels spin with the creations of local ceramicists. Nearby, Infinity Forge lights up with the heat of creativity.

    Visual Art Production Spaces The Generator A free community art space, The Generator, promotes three main ideas: “Work less. Build more. Play more.” The 34,000-square-foot workspace includes a full-service woodshop, metal working facility, 3D printers, and classes. This artist co-working space often hosts the creation of large-scale Burning Man projects like Embrace, which was featured on the playa in 2014.
