Parking for a Purpose art project aims to raise money for city parks

Post Date:07/24/2014 5:24 PM
To complement Artown, the City of Reno’s Parking for a Purpose project officially kicks off on Friday, July 25, 2014 at 5 p.m. as artist Michael Lucido will paint the parking meter at Moana Springs Recreation Complex.

Three other meters are currently installed, one in Barbara Bennett Park and two in Wingfield Park, and will be decorated by artists in the coming weeks.

The donations collected via Parking for a Purpose will be utilized for Parks, Recreation, and Community Services (PRCS) maintenance. Public Works staff will empty the digital meters, which explain the program and thank participants for their donation, and track the contributions to the PRCS Department.

Councilmember Hillary Schieve initiated the program, which was unanimously approved at the June 11, 2014 Reno City Council meeting.

Artists will be paid $800 total ($200 per meter) out of the Public Art Fund. More meters could be installed in the future as city resources allow.
