Regional Community

Greetings from your Reno Regional Contacts! Reno and the surrounding communities of Northern Nevada and Northeast California literally have the Playa in their backyard. We like to think of ourselves as 'Backyard Burners'. Reno has a great, and ever growing, Burner Community, with events happening all year round. We are currently in the throes of obtaining a new RC or two as Stacy stepped away to pursue other endeavors. We had our annual Town Hall at the Morris Burner Hotel and featured multiple art projects, local happenings, interaction with local groups and art grant opportunities. Town Hall was followed by our very first Pre-Compression and was a huge success! Many art projects bound for playa for 2016, such as the Spacewhale and Inside The Mind of DaVinci, are under construction at the Generator and elsewhere in town. The Reno Core Project is creating an artist's guildspace for the man base.  More burner art is being aquired and installed around northern Nevada. Recently the Believe sculpture was permanently placed in downtown Reno. The daffodil mosaic sculture from a couple of years ago is displayed in downtown Sparks. The Gateway Project is being formed to bring more burner art to Reno, presented in a park-like setting.To see what's going on, visit or just link to our:
