Brief Description

The Reno Arts & Culture Commission (RACC) is accepting qualifications from artists for a public art opportunity on E. 4th Street in Reno, NV. The Reno Arts & Culture Commission received an Our Town Grant from the National Endowment for the Arts to support community engagement and public art creation in the City of Reno’s E. 4th Street District. E. 4th Street has undergone many transformations over the years and remains an important part of our city’s history. There has been a recent resurgence of businesses in the area–old and new–and a desire to create a cohesive identity in the neighborhood. The City’s new master plan, Reimagine Reno, and the Downtown Action Plan, envision the area as an innovation district. This project will enhance what is already becoming a mixed-use and light industrial environment to transform East 4th Street into a vibrant location for residents and tourists.
