The Mangrove Opening
We had a great time at the Mangrove Opening.
First exhibited at Burning Man 2007, The Mangrove is an eclectic collection of artworks sculpted by different artist or artist collectives. Each work offers a different lesson, rendered with exquisite craft and detail, in how discarded materials can be reused to create beauty out of 'trash'.
The works now grace the bank of the Truckee River in downtown Reno, Nevada, on the corner of Sierra Street and Island Avenue. This lot is now transformed into an interactive art grove as of September 6, 2008, and remains on display, free to the public, until December 13, 2008.
BRAF extends our sincerest thanks to the The Freight House District, LLC, the City of Reno, United Rentals, Fernley Electric and Peppermill Hotel Casino Reno and the Sierra Arts Foundation for their support of this project.
