This weekend (September 8-11) marks the first year of a brand new annual art event in Reno, and the first of its kind on the west coast. The Reno Tahoe International Art Show will take place from September 8-11 at the Reno Sparks Convention Center, plus feature additional events at the Nevada Museum of Art and Cargo Concert Hall at Whitney Peak.
This art fair will feature works from virtually every arts organization in Reno, 80+ live music acts, a short film program in collaboration with the Cordillera International Film Festival, major sculptures direct from Burning Man and around the world, an awards ceremony to honor some of the most accomplished artists in the region, and much more.
This week on the podcast, RTIA co-founder Briana Dolan joins Conor to discuss what went into creating the event, Reno as an under the radar arts city (Reno.... who knew?), the experience of collaborating with the various arts organizations, why music is an important element of the show, the importance of creating memorable spaces and experiences for visitors, and much more!
