Restaurants, galleries and businesses in the downtown Reno Arts District are bustling every first Thursday because of Art Walk Reno.

Every first Thursday of the month from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., join us and see the works of local and regional artists on display in venues within the Arts District, between Liberty Street and Second Street, and Virginia Street and Arlington Avenue.

The guided Art Walk officially begins at 6 p.m. at West Street Market, 148 West Street in downtown Reno.

Each month, the pavilion will be open for local artist to come and set up their wares. Painting, drawing, printmaking, ceramics, glass, photography and more will be available for the public to purchase. Come early to meet the artists and learn . There will be food and drink specials from participating businesses along the way.

“It was tremendously exciting last month to see people from all parts of Reno enjoying emerging artists and each other’s company at stop after stop,” said Eric Brooks, art walk curator. “This month will prove to be even more exciting, with so much new art to discover.”

Official afterparty with Loud As Folk, (inside Pignic Pub & Patio, 235 Flint St.) featuring local, national and international musicians. A portion of all proceeds from Art Walk Reno and all donations from Loud As Folk will be donated to non-profit groups focused on art, education, and community.
