Sneak Peek: The Evolution of Burning Man

I’m always looking for interesting events to attend in Reno, NV and the City of Dust: The Evolution of Burning Man definitely did not disappoint. Hosted by the Nevada Museum of Art, this special art exhibit allowed visitors to explore the story of how burning man began and has since transformed into the world-renowned phenomenon that it is today. Today I’ll be sharing never before seen photos, journals and sketches that reveal the magic behind this temporary city’s evolution and enchanting story.

City of Dust: The Evolution of Burning Man

The Burning Man art exhibit was located downtown at the Nevada Museum of Art. This specific exhibit ends this Sunday, so if you’re unable to make it, don’t fret. If you are interested in attending any upcoming events at the musuem, just give me a call! I have free tickets and would love to have you as my guest. (775)544-6400.

Using historical records, we can trace the growth and development of Burning Man’s temporary city that emerges annually in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada. It originated after the height of the hippy culture in the early 1980’s – the perfect time to entertain new ideas that transcended the thought of main stream society.

Exploring Reno – The Eddy Beer Garden

What do you get when you combine a beer garden, food trucks, community art space, and plenty of oversized lawn games?

The answer is Reno’s newest (and first) container park: The Eddy, right in the heart of downtown. With great food, great drinks, and plenty of learning & socializing opportunities in a super-fun atmosphere, they’ve got something for everybody. I really think this place is going to be one of Reno’s biggest community attractions soon. But why wait even a moment longer to explore it? I visited the Eddy myself recently, and here are my impressions:

“Contain” Your Excitement

Have you ever been to a container park before? It’s a really neat concept – using those giant shipping containers (which are usually in abundant supply, especially near major ports) to create structures that are easily built, moved, and recycled. Lately, container villages have been popping up a lot in Europe, especially as temporary housing for students, refugees, etc.

This is the first such project in Reno, and the design alone makes the Eddy well worth a visit for folks interested in unconventional architecture. It’s a self-contained patio with different areas separated only by container walls and tunnels, and tons of fresh air and sunshine. The developers from Realm Constructors actually took a lot of design inspiration from San Francisco’s ever-popular Biergarten.

What’s On Tap?

When it comes to actually getting folks in the door, The Eddy’s food and drinks are
probably going to be the biggest draws. There are three distinct bars here, each with a different selection of beer and wines available, though their handcrafted cocktails are pretty innovative and definitely worth a look too. If you’ve opened a tab, you can order from any one of these spots without having to change your card – so don’t feel like you have to stick to one area!

Taking advantage of the open-air setup, the Eddy also hosts a rotating selection of local food trucks serving up everything from tacos and wraps to ice cream. Of course, you’re free to bring some grub from home: there’s even a barbecue hut to prepare it in.

Community Living

The Eddy is more than just a place to grab a bite and take the edge off after a long
day at work. Their prime location on the Riverwalk is no accident: they’re aiming to
be an inclusive community space for all of Reno’s residents.

Says Laurel Stout-Stitser, their communications manager: “We call it a collaborative community space, because we are truly a space that was built for the community at large.”

Thought-provoking installations by local artists reflect the mood of Reno today (and they make for a perfect conversation-starter if you’re here on a date). And live music performances and free fitness classes are just some of the events on their shifting calendar. Upcoming events are generally posted to their Facebook page. Despite all the alcohol, the Eddy is actually quite family-friendly during the day. In addition to the music and art, you’ll find plenty of outdoor games like bocce and corn hole (aka beanbag toss) – plus picnic tables, a covered lounge area, and a fire pit. Just note that after 7:30pm, the Eddy becomes a 21+ venue, and they will come around to check IDs.

The Eddy is really a special place, even for Reno. A place to refresh yourself, a hip and trendy center of community, an industrial playground for kids and grownups alike, and a prime spot on the river’s edge. What’s not to love?
