Reno City Plaza (downtown Reno) heats up for one of the summer's favorite events. Celebrating its 7th year, it's the "hottest" show during the popular Artown! A fire art garden and various fire-inspired art projects will be along Virginia Street, as well as an alternative vendor village.
During daylight hours, demonstrations from a compendium of local artists will feature glass-blowing and pottery exhibitions, as well as playshops in dance and object manipulation. After dark, propane flame effects will be highlighted along with fire performance by local and regional fire artists choreographed to modern, driving music.
In 2014, Nevada commemorates its Sesquicentennial! This year’s Compression! festival is an official Nevada 150 Event in celebration of statehood, cultural heritage and all things Nevada.
