Found in Reno: Multi-story parking-garage murals

Come see 'Bluerprint of a mother' and 'Face of Reno,' both murals on a multi-story structure in downtown Reno. See how gigantic these works of art are >>

Parking garage mural, Reno - 1

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.

The Face of Reno by Christina Angelina

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.

    The Face of Reno is marvellous. Multi-storey car parks are usually an ugly necessity in our cities – great to see one that provides art

      It really is. I didn’t expect to see that much street art there.
      The Face of Reno is ‘perfect.’ 🙂

      You are welcome. Thank you for hosting. 😊

    You know Murals and Divya have become synonymous for me. Recently, I was in Dehradun to attend IB BNLF event and during Ruskin Bond Heritage Walk, when I noticed a mural, it immediately reminded me of you. Hope I’ll meet you someday in person. 🙂

      Oh, you went for BNLF? So cool. I’m sure that was a great experience. 🙂

      I heard about the heritage walk. That must have been very interesting. I hope you’ll write about it; I would love to read about it.
      And you saw a mural too? 🙂
      😀 😀 So sweet of you, Ravish.

      I know — I hope we get to meet, sometime.
