Reno, Nevada (August 22, 2017) — Burning Man revelers have begun traveling through the Reno area in preparation for the main event, which begins August 27, 2017 in the Black Rock Desert. The City of Reno recognizes the regional importance of Burning Man, and is providing residents a chance to get involved, even if they aren’t attending the famous annual week-long event on the playa.
On Tuesday, August 22, 2017 from 5 to 7 p.m., media and the public are invited to the free reception for Desert Dreams in Metro Gallery at Reno City Hall. This will be Reno Mayor Hillary Schieve’s first official “Mayor’s Gallery.” She will attend the reception as a tribute to Burning Man, and Reno City Councilmember David Bobzien will be the DJ for the event.
Desert Dreams, works by world-renowned photographer Peter Ruprecht, will be open August 21 to October 6, 2017. Artists Bruce Clark and Lauren Cardenas will also open exhibits at other City of Reno art galleries on August 21. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
