    D.I.C.E. 2016: ADAPT

    Friday September 30, 2016 / 2 – 7 pm

    For the past 6 years, DICE has served as a platform for all design disciplines and how they improve our future. With the Nevada Museum of Art’s space as a creative catalyst, DICE presents an annual competition and gathers some of the world’s most inspiring speakers. The goal is to challenge our thinking and explore the power and potential of good design. Featuring renowned graphic designer Karin Hibma, landscape architect Gena Wirth, Reno’s own Stan Byers and Libby Brokaw from STANCAN Design, and urbanist Ashley Z. Hand, the afternoon is full of multi-disciplinary design ideas and a creative competition, capped off by a brief reception. More information can be found at www.designconferencenv.com

    Reception to follow.
