About this collection

Reno, Nevada is currently experiencing a revitalization related to an explosion in population brought on by new industry in the area. Downtown and “Midtown” neighborhoods are being transformed at a highly accelerated rate as housing prices climb and new citizens crave the unique Reno urban art experience provided by local and visiting street artists. The neighborhoods are richly diverse, and the most popular muralists/street artists in Reno represent a variety of ethnic and cultural backgrounds. The recent proliferation of street art in these neighborhoods, coupled with the ephemeral nature of street art, inspired librarians, local artists, and multimedia specialists at the University of Nevada, Reno to capture images of and metadata about the art in order to create a digital archive.
