Jacobs Entertainment today released renderings of two new sculptures coming to Reno’s Neon Line — a half-mile long area on west Fourth Street that features neon signs and public art.

“A strong focus on Reno’s history and spirit is the cornerstone to a successful urban revitalization effort,” CEO Jeff Jacobs said. “We expect to redefine the region by providing a space that residents and visitors alike can explore and celebrate.”

The new pieces are:

  • Tara Mechani by Dana Albany, a female figure made out of 80 percent recycled, mixed-metals
  • Polar Bear by Don Kennell and Lisa Adler, a 35-foot polar bear composed of scrap car hoods

The new sculptures are added to the four that have been installed earlier this year. The “Neon Line” district, according to the company, is a $1 billion project from West Street to Keystone Avenue.
