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 thrilled to welcome our newest Regional Contact, Danielle "Gemini" Gann-Lind.  Gemini is also a Black Rock Ranger, she wears many hats. We had our annual Town Hall at the world-famous Generator and featured multiple art projects, local happenings, interaction with local groups and shared art grant opportunities.  Many art projects were created for the playa in 2017.,  Recent news: The Spacewhale, has been installed in downtown Reno and Inside The Mind of DaVinci has relocated from UNR to Carson City.  More burner art is being aquired and installed around northern Nevada. Recently the Believe sculpture was permanently placed in downtown Reno. The daffodil mosaic sculpture from a couple of years ago is displayed in downtown Sparks. The Gateway Project has assembled more burner art  at the Playa Art Park in downtown Reno, presented in a park-like setting. Reno Burners llc continues to produce Reno Decompression to raise funds for art grants and charitable contributions within our community. To see what's going on, visit or just link to our:
