Airpark Signs and Graphics


The 40 artworks of Signs and Ciphers create a drive-thru gallery that touches on the redeveloping nature of Midtown Reno. The brightly colored panels attach to the existing light poles enhancing the multi-modal experience along South Virginia Street.


Signs and Ciphers uses figures, symbols and graphic patterns to touch on the themes of growth, change and optimism.

Here the signs point to the evolution of the district’s future.
