About the Event

Many Americans – especially lawmakers – think of the arts and arts education as a luxury. The truth is that we can’t afford to live in a world without ART. The arts aren’t just for artists. Art unifies, educates, and elevates our Northern Nevada community.

Speakers include:

Alexis Hill - Arts, Culture, and Events Manager for City of Reno

Geralda Miller - Executive Director, ArtSpot Reno

Mario Delarosa - Director of Latino Arte and Owner of Ahora Lation Journal

Maria Partridge - Burning Man Project

Joe C. Rock - Mural and Print Artis and Arts Activist
