Reno and street art just cannot be separated from each other. The art on the street are not much talked about. At least not as much as the casinos and the neon lights that seem to characterize the city. But anybody who has walked down those streets cannot have missed the splash of colors on the walls. For this week’s Monday Murals, let me present Mount Whitney Hotel’s multi-story parking garage murals.
Look at the sheer size of these pieces of art. There’s no missing these murals. And look at the beauty of these works. I spotted these as I was strolling down Virginia Street and some of its side streets one April morning.
Reno’s parking garage murals – 1
The first painting — of the blue lady and what looks like Mt. Whitney– I hear is called Blueprint of a Mother and is by an artist called Erik Burke.

And this painting on the other side of the parking garage is called, ‘The face of Reno.’ This gigantic piece of art seems to have been done by artist Christina Angelina.

This is not all. There should be another 2-3 posts of art from the streets of Reno, NV. Stay tuned. 🙂
