Reno Art Fix (Jan. 5): Videos of The Light Chimes and BELIEVE Sculpture


At the unveiling of the BELIEVE sculpture last week, Reno Mayor Hillary Schieve spoke about the efforts our city has put forth in the direction of public art spaces. With the permanent addition of the BELIEVE sculpture to the city landscape, Reno is putting down energy and money to bring on a new chapter in its history. BELIEVE’s temporary home is on the public plaza adjacent to the Reno Arch in downtown. After the completion of the Virginia Street Bridge, BELIEVE will be moved to the city plaza.

23814976309_73ed29fda4-7879801-1268165At Wingfield Park, also in the downtown area, you will find “The Light Chimes.” This is the work of local artist Scott Morgan. It consists of six chimes, each with several lighting elements that are controlled by a computer to emit patterns of color. I found this fascinating to watch. The data controlling the patterns come from photos of street murals found around Reno as well as a photo of the Milky Way. The Light Chimes will illuminate Wingfield Park from 4 to 10 pm daily until the Virginia Street bridge reopens, and the BELIEVE sculpture will stay for our enjoyment when we’re downtown.

I am feeling so very energized at the direction Reno is going and I am excited for the future of this city we call home. For more information on Reno Arts and Culture go to their website; http://www.reno.gov/government/departments/parks-recreation-community-services/arts-culture
