Transforming Youth Recovery is sponsoring the Doors to Recovery Public Art Project to celebrate the countless courageous young people who daily confront the devastating disease of addiction and are rebuilding their lives in recovery.
Using antique doors from Reno's Lear Theater, more than 40 renowned and emerging local artists are transforming a small piece of history into works of art, to inspire hope for the future of our young people. The completed art-doors will be on display for the entire month of July, in select locations around downtown and midtown Reno, in conjunction with Artown.
The entire collection will be displayed on the evening of August 9th, 2014 at the Nevada Museum of Art. This will be the only opportunity to see the doors together in one place. They will be auctioned to the public that evening, in support of the vital work of Transforming Youth Recovery and project partners including the University of Nevada, Reno.
Funds raised from this event will support Transforming Youth Recovery and Tour de Nez, Artown, and the Nevada Recovery and Prevention Community at the University of Nevada, Reno and TMCC. The event starts at 7 p.m. and the live auction starts at 7:30 p.m.
