The Mangrove Opening Reception is going to be shortly after the Burning Man Festival closes, so mark your calendars now so you do not miss it.

Sierra Arts Foundation Gallery17 S. Virginia Street
Join us for a celebration of our first interactive art installation in Nevada.
The Mangrove is part of our Civic Arts Program, and is a collection of tree sculptures, each by a different artist.
The works will grace the bank of the Truckee River in downtown Reno, Nevada, on the corner of Sierra Street and Island Avenue. This currently empty lot transforms into an interactive art grove September 6, 2008, and remains on display, free to the public, until December 13, 2008.
BRAF extends our sincerest thanks to the The Freight House District, LLC,
the City of Reno, United Rentals, Fernley Electric and Peppermill Hotel Casino Reno and the Sierra Arts Foundation for their support of this project.
First exhibited at Burning Man 2007, The Mangrove is an eclectic collection of artworks sculpted by five different artist collectives. Each work offers a different lesson, rendered with exquisite craft and detail, in how discarded materials can be reused to create beauty out of ‘trash’.
