The Folk & The Lore: Stories From Rural Nevada
Presented by The Folk & The Lore in partnership with Reno Rodeo
In celebration for the upcoming centennial and sesquicentennial for Reno Rodeo and the City of Reno (respectively), The Folk & The Lore will be telling the unique stories of western life and how the Rodeo has shaped the unique identity of our city. We will be exploring western traditions, notable characters from Reno’s past and present, and how the ranching community came to be what it is today.
This multimedia project aims to collect, archive, and tell stories from Reno and throughout the region through photography, short films, and live storytelling events that will be held regularly at the Nevada Museum of Art. Together, we believe that when you know your neighbor’s story, not only do you feel more connected to your community, but those stories become part of your own lore. Join this event for an evening of storytelling and films based on the Stories From Rural Nevada.
Funding, in part, provided by the City of Reno Arts & Culture Commission.
Doors open at 5pm for social hour and chez louie cash bar. Stories begin at 6pm.
