The Nevada Museum of Art hosted their annual Barrio Block Party Saturday, July 8. The free event included admission into the museum, food and craft vendors, hands-on art projects, and live music. Families could enjoy a rock climbing wall, face painting, tissue paper flower-making, drop-in drawing, printed postcard making, Hula-hooping, side walk chalk drawing, and fish flower bicycle press making. Guests were also able to view the insides of Gypsy Getaway Wagons as well as leave their mark by painting the front of the wagons.

Peter Hazel, a tile and granite artist who frequently makes art for Burning Man, was available for a meet and greet. And aligning with Hazel’s planned 2017 Burning Man sculpture, clay jellyfish were available for children to paint. More information on his design for this year’s large-scale Burning Man sculpture, Bloom, a giant jellyfish, can be found here: https://www.hatchfund.org/project/bloom_1

Food vendors included Kenji’s, Lazy Sundae Ice Cream Truck, St. Lawrence Pizza, and La Favorita. There were live musical performances by Danza De Matlachines Guadalupana and Ritmo Ardiente. Between performances, music was provided by a DJ from Amplified Entertainment. Many visitors enjoyed dancing despite the almost 100+ degree weather.

In addition to food, music, and art, local Art Mart vendors set up shop to display and sell their products. The vendors included: Eastern Slopes Clay Works, Elevation Hoops, Faith Colors, Grace Hayes, Infinite Glass, Jiggler Designs, Barbara Kallestad, Louise Noel Silk Paintings, Meridian Press, Pottery by Leigh, Rock NV Jewelry, Shelby McAuliffe, Sierra Essentials, Tahoe Teas, and Wild Sierra Soap.
