Installations began this week at the Bicentennial Park Sculpture Garden. Image: Dana Nollsch.

On Thursday, October 27, 2016 the Rotary Club of Reno and the City of Reno’s Arts and Culture Commission opened the Sculpture Garden in Bicentennial Park to the six artists so that they could install the artwork that will be in the park for the next year.

There was a lot of excitement even with the rain and wind. The six artists represented this year are Carolyn Guerra, Colin O’Bryan, Eileen Gay, Brett Moten, Jeff Schomberg and Grant Miller.

The park is almost ready for the public and will have its dedication on Friday, November 4 at 1:30 p.m.

For now, you can walk the path along the river and check out the park through the temporary fence.

This project commemorates the Rotary Club of Reno’s 100th Anniversary. The art will be rotated out every year with different organizations curating each year’s exhibit.

The work is on display at Centennial Park at West First and Ralston streets along the Truckee River.

Check out this behind the scenes video and a few interviews as well.
