The Black Rock Arts Foundation (BRAF) was rocking on Friday night in Reno.
What a great opening celebration and fun time was had by all at the installation for Celtic Forest; Book of the Raven, which is part of BRAF's Civic Arts Program, in downtown Reno. It is the first installation of its kind to have Flame Effects on a regular basis. The crowd loved the art, the fire, the community, the music both live and with a DJ. So many people have helped to bring this art to fruition and the Black Rock Arts Foundation could not have done it without their help. From the local burners, city officials, vendors that gave freely of their services, to the locals that came to appreciate the art & fire. One of the Black Rock Arts Foundation's own Advisory Board members, Maria Partridge so totally rocked with her energy and creativity. Thank you Maria.
Here's the link to the RGJ article Friday, June 26.
We also had a listing on the calendar page for the opening event. On the TV side we were told we had coverage on Ch 2 News @ 5pm and I believe Ch 4. showed some footage from the opening.
