With Reno’s 150th birthday being celebrated all month long, Silver State 98, a Nevada-inspired art company, is creating a special map of Reno to present to the city on Wednesday, May 9 at 4:30 p.m. at the Greater Nevada Field.
“Not only does home mean Nevada, but our entire team feels a close connection to Reno,” said Matthew Lewandowski. “We are excited to ring in the 150th year in style and to be out in the community engaging with everyone who shares in our Reno pride at a variety of local events this month!”
At Reno’s Biggest Little Birthday Event, learn about Reno’s history, people, and events and visit booths showcasing historical and cultural organizations. Silver State 98 will have a table you can stop by to see their Reno-themed prints and stickers. In honor of the city’s 150th year, and because Reno High School was founded nearly 140 years ago as the first high school in the area, the founders are giving a portion of the proceeds from local events back to Reno High School.
Later in the month, to continue celebrating the city’s birthday, Silver State 98 will be at the Reno River Festival where they will be selling their Nevada-inspired art pieces and again, donating a percentage of the proceeds back to Reno High School. The Reno River Festival, May 12-13, will feature local art, music, and food.
“Not only is the festival a great summer kick-off event for the city,” said Lewandowski, “but, the team is also looking forward to being able to give back through celebrating Nevada pride all month long. We can’t wait to see you all out and about celebrating 150 years of Reno this month!”
