The Altered Landscape

There is a fantastic exhibit happening at the Nevada Museum of Art right now. Normally when you hear about a permanent collection show at a museum yawning ensues – not true with this one! This is an impressive body of work and it is incredible that it is right here in Reno. They have other permanent collections, but this one in particular is highly linked to the identity of the museum. The Altered Landscape Photography Collection is one of the institution’s largest focused collecting areas. It has approximately 2,000 photographs. In these images, artists reveal the ways that individuals and industries have marked, mined, toured, tested, developed, occupied, and exploited landscapes over the last fifty years.  Read The Rest

Pitch Black Printing

I just found out about this amazing new business in Reno! As an artist I can’t wait to check them out. If you have ever looked into getting art or photographs printed you probably know that it is a hassle. You can order online, but then you are not sure about the product you will get back. If you go with a local big brand printer you are often limited on paper choices and the final product doesn’t always match the price tag. Having a local small business option for printing in Reno is amazing!  Read The Rest

Midtown Reno Street Art

I’ll be the first to admit it – I was not super stoked to move to Reno. The city had a weird and somewhat negative reputation (and still does to an extent). Moving to Reno was my first big move and it was a shock and a struggle. Reno is similar to Colorado and that only made me more homesick…but the time has come to set the record straight. I’ve recovered from my breakup with Colorado and I have been in Nevada for quite a while. The reputation Reno has dealt with all these years is undeserved and experiencing an evolution. One might even say it is becoming popular. Not just people who live here like it here.

I want to be part of the conversation that boosts the positive rep of Reno – with my new blog category Reno is Rad! In those posts I’m going to tell you about cool things that are happening in and around Reno with an emphasis on art/design and travel. First up we are going to look at the rad street art right in my neighborhood!  Read The Rest
