Reno Bike Project to host 6th annual We HeART Bikes Art Show Saturday



The Reno Bike Project hosts a fundraising art show every year to celebrate art and bike culture in the Truckee Meadows.

This year, the show will be at the Holland Project on April 28 starting with a reception at 5 p.m. Live music, food and drinks will be provided at this family friendly event.

This is one of RBP’s most anticipated events of the year. Last year over 75 local and regional artists contributed over 100 pieces of art. Artwork is sold, and proceeds benefit the bike project. “It’s always a fun time whenever we can mix bikes and art,” said RBP Executive Director Noah Silverman. “Each year we get to showcase some of the best artists in the community who create art specifically for this event.”
