City of Sparks Hosts a List of Artown Events

PRESS RELEASE

New Arts and Culture Advisory Committee Funds Local Artists for a Month of Cultural Events

The City of Sparks is excited to see Artown expanded into the city for a variety of events during the month-long festival. Included in the lineup is a series of “Discover the Arts” programs to be presented in English and in Spanish.

The city coordinated a collaborative effort to bring the event to Sparks with the Sparks Museum and Cultural Center, 39 North, Restless Artists Theatre, and Artown. The events were funded by the Arts and Culture Advisory Committee and the Tourism and Marketing Committee, which derives the funds from room tax dollars and permitting fees.

“We hope that our citizens will come to these events and engage in art in a new way or expose their kids to art for the first time,” said Francine Burge, Special Events Supervisor. “And perhaps this gives the citizens of Reno a chance to cross the boundary of our cities and support art here,” she added.
