New mural at Fire Station 2 shows City’s continued support of public art

The City of Reno invites media and the public to the unveiling of a mural by artist Paige Gomez in collaboration with supporting artist Lupe Reyes, The Holland Project and Hug High School art students on Tuesday, February 6, 2018 at 3 p.m. at Fire Station 2.

The piece was commissioned by the Reno Fire Department and City of Reno Arts and Culture Commission.

“When you think about public art, you might not always associate it with a fire station,” Reno City Councilmember Paul McKenzie said. “This mural is a nod to our community in Ward 4, helping to further connect Fire Station 2 to the neighborhood that surrounds it.”

“The mural not only enhances the space, but it fights blight by decreasing graffiti in the area,” said Reno City Councilmember Naomi Duerr, who is also the Council liaison to the Arts and Culture Commission.

The mural was paid for with $3,500 from the City of Reno’s Blight Initiative.
