Reno Gateway Project

Art from the playa will soon take up residence in downtown Reno within a newly vacated lot on Virginia Street. Our reporter Bob Conrad has the story.

Two motels were recently demolished at that location, and the Reno City Council approved this week a proposal to turn the parcel into a temporary sculpture park.

City staff have been working with an arts nonprofit to place the Burning Man art at a city location, and the lot at 520 North Virginia Street was chosen after the motels were demolished.
