Native American Arts and Culture Gathering at the Nevada Museum of Art

July 11, 2018

“Hands ON! on Second Saturday” is the monthly free family event at the Nevada Museum of Art (NMA) in Reno. On Saturday, July 14, 2018, the theme will be “Reawakening the Great Basin: A Native American Arts and Culture Gathering.”

This is a free Artown event. The public is invited to meet several established and emerging Native American visual artists from across the region, who will be selling their traditional and contemporary creations, and sharing their knowledge. Numerous performing artists will demonstrate a variety of traditional dances, including Grindstone Patwin Dancers, traditional Bird Singers from Pala Band of Mission Indians, Owens Valley Paiute War Dancers, the RSIC Pow Wow Club, Eagle Wing Pageant Dancers and more. Bring the whole family to learn, listen, shop, participate, and celebrate during this very special community day.

Even if you don’t participate in Hands ON!, admission to the NMA on this day is free for all visitors. Learn more about the current exhibits, activities, and classes by following the links from my “Enjoy the Nevada Museum of Art in Reno” article. For more information, call the NMA at (775) 329-3333.

There are lots of other activities and events during July around the Reno area. Learn about many of these from “July 2018 Events and Activities in the Reno Region.”
