For me, the Mini Maker Faire in Reno was all about collaboration, connection and art. I was blown away by the art pieces that were showcased for the TEDxReno event and then for our event last Saturday. The piece above was created by Bryce Chisholm a local artist who’s work can be seen all over Reno. This piece was painted on the side of an electrical box outside the theater and will become a part of the local landscape around Riverside Drive. TEDx shared a great video about Bryce’s art which you can see here: Bryce Chisholm Video

The full word Believe is now in its temporary home at the ice rink in downtown Reno. Reno Gazette Journal also has a great video to watch on the making of the art pieces. So definitely take a moment and click on the link above. I particularly enjoyed Jeff speaking about how he gives away the bird pieces and that they now exist all over the world.

Warwick and his crew currently work out of the Generator in Sparks and are creating a new installation for this years upcoming Burning Man. The installation aptly named The Library of Babel will house hand made books with handmade paper and a series of lighted pieces that you see below based upon the works of Borges. You can follow along their journey of creating their exhibit on their facebook page: The Library of Babel and most recently they have started a kickstarter campaign that you can connect to through this video: The Library of Babel
