June 12 @ 5:00 pm

| Cost: Free

BRAF, the City of Fernley, and the Burning Man Project are thrilled to invite the public to join in the celebration of the Big Art for Small Towns projects. These three large-scale artworks will make their formal public debut in a public opening reception. This lively reception will feature local musical talent, speakers and family-friendly arts and crafts activities.

Due to unforeseen circumstances the opening reception (originally planned for June 12, 2014) has been postponed. The new date will be announced shortly.
