2019 Artown Poster
About This Year’s 2019 Poster Artist
The 2019 Artown poster and featured work of art was created by mother, daughter and son, Debbie, Rachael and John-Henry Lambin (of My Thousand Words, book sculptures) and inspired by the 1945 Reno-based novel by Walter van Tilburg Clark titled “The City of Trembling Leaves.” Van Tilburg Clark describes the city composed of several themes brought about by physical structures of the city’s districts. The novel centers on the inevitability of tomorrow, and the pursuit of human interests through spirituality, creativity and friendship.
“To produce the sculpture, the pages of the book were gently and carefully removed and beautifully rolled, twisted and wrapped to create a work of art that depicts the amalgamation of different facets of art, connecting the community of northern Nevada. The piece thus represents what Artown works to achieve each and every year: bringing the community together and presenting incredible creativity from the hands of many, for all to enjoy!” – The Lambins
Throughout the month of July, the Artown poster sculpture will be on display at Nevada State Bank, located at 1 W Liberty St, Reno, NV 89501.
