RENOvation, an initiative of the Nevada Museum of Art and its Center for Art + Environment, seeks to explore and define a new, more sustainable community fabric for Reno, and to catalyze a vibrant new self-identity grounded in art and design for the city and its inhabitants.
The selected projects represent the best of the more than 2,000 applications from across the country. Finalists were chosen for their potential to have a transformative impact on community vibrancy.
ArtPlace expects to distribute $15 million in 2012. This year’s grant recipients will be announced in May. Last year, 34 organizations received a total of $11.5 million.
