Reno City Council has designated a new space for public art. Downtown’s Art Plaza, formerly known as City Plaza, will permanently house several works, including the popular “Believe” sculpture created by Jeff Schomberg. 

“I think it’s a really good spot for it,” Schomberg said. “Public art creates a community gathering space and a great photo op for people, and just a good reason for people to come downtown and enjoy the large-scale art.”
