Burning Man and Washoe County are seeking artists and nonprofits to help highlight cultural and historic landmarks along a 200-mile route through Reno to Gerlach.

An 18-month process to develop the trail is starting with a call for two art installations that “reflect the home that is Washoe County,” according to a statement.

The idea:

“What is the first memory of the place you call home? We all have some sense of the places where we grew up; we form attachments, make connections and forge memories of those places.

“This route will be celebrated through two iconic art installations at either end and a series of signs that will allow for interactive collection of memories associated with personal history and place.

“Stopping at your favorite look-out point, fishing hole, or inspirational artwork – individuals will be able to use an ‘augmented reality’ app on their phones to add to the story collection, photos, and memories that comprise the history of that place.”
