The walk officially begins at 5 p.m. at Liberty Fine Art Gallery, 100 West Liberty Street. There, you can purchase a ticket, for $10, which includes a glass, raffle ticket and program for the evening. Or purchase a limited-edition hand-painted glass by this month’s featured artist, Michelle Nelsen, for $15.

The event ends with a raffle drawing at ArtSpace gallery in West Street Market. Prizes include a $200.00 voucher good towards any piece of art shown on the walk.

A portion of this month’s proceeds will benefit Bruka Theater of the Sierra, a non-profit performance art space located in downtown Reno..
