This year, the show will be at the Holland Project at 140 Vesta Street in Reno on April 6 starting with a reception at 6pm. 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 80 local and regional artists contributed over 100 pieces of art. Artwork is sold and a percentage of the proceeds benefit the Reno 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.”

Artists must submit their work by March 29 and can do so by dropping it off at the shop or mailing it to 541 E. Fourth Street Reno, NV 89512. For more information visit www.renobikeproject.com or www.facebook.com/renobikeproject.
