Downtown Reno will host a temporary home for sculptor artist Kate Raudenbush‘s “Duel Nature” at the corner of Sierra Street & Island Avenue as a feature of the upcoming Artown Festival. The large steel and mirror sculpture was previously exhibited at Burning Man in 2006, and is being brought back to Nevada through a collaboration of the Civic Art Program of the Black Rock Arts Foundation, the non-profit art organization of Burning Man, and The City of Reno Arts and Culture Commission’s grant program.
An Opening Celebration will take place on May 21, 2010 at the installation site at 5pm. The festivities will include appetizers and wine provided by the Sierra Arts Foundation Gallery; Hoola-Hoop Jam performances by bohohoops and Velocity Movement [BYOHs!]; and fire-spinning by Controlled Burn after dark.
The Season’s fun begins!
