This year, in place of Artown’s large summer festival gatherings, the people are the headliners, as Artown becomes “Heartown,” a regional campaign in celebration of the essential role art plays in our hearts, in our lives and in our communities.

We’re asking EVERYONE to ‘show us your heart through your art.’ Families can do “Heartown” art projects by crafting expressions and symbols of love at home, at their businesses, and with their coworkers--with whatever supplies they already have around the house or at work. Everything from drawings, paintings, yard art and sidewalk chalk, to sculptures, ornamental displays on balconies, decorative signs, and garden designs--any expression of art that comes from your heart is welcome. Because now, more than ever, the power of art can inspire and uplift us all.

Artown staff and volunteers are collecting donations of art supplies for the “Heartown” campaign for distribution to  underserved communities, children’s programs, non-profits, and family-focused organizations to ensure multicultural participation in the regional effort. We encourage you to give generously to this campaign by contacting us at 775.322.1538. Donations can be safely dropped off at the Artown donation box at our office at 528 W. First Street in downtown Reno during business hours Monday through Friday from 9am to 5pm.
