Do you have a park that needs some art? Do you have a city that would benefit from the culture of Burning Man? In 2008, Maria Partridge and Crimson Rose decided to bring out an art collection from Burning Man to Downtown Reno. For three months, the temporary art installation became a community space with music, meetups and Burning Man culture, connecting burners with the citizens of Reno. Over the years, Maria has learned a thing or two about how to work with the city of Reno. This year, she brings you Reno Playa Art Park, a six-month, temporary art collection in downtown Reno. If your burner community is thinking about bringing your burner art to your city, then this is the conversation for you. Listen to Maria talk about her experience and share the knowledge that she’s gathered. Sparking an interest? More info to come in the near future!
