New exhibits open in Reno museum

admin |

Three new art exhibits are now open at the National Automobile Museum in downtown Reno at 10 S. Lake St.

The Art Collection of Bill and Jo Janowski is in the Museum’s Changing Exhibits Gallery through June 8, 2009. The exhibit invites visitors to step into speed, emotion and adventure with artwork that takes moments of time and translates them into the art of the automobile in contemporary form. Racing is the common thread for the exhibit and specific cars, legendary drivers and activities of the sport are the primary subjects. Featured artists include Bill Neale, Niles Nakaoka and Lawrence Braun, all members of the Automotive Fine Arts Society.

The Roadside Attractions exhibit showcases photography by Howard Goldbaum through June 8, 2009. During a 15,000-mile trip across the nation, Howard Goldbaum explored the artifacts of the American roadway. His photographs capture a unique element of Americana, “roadside attractions” that express the entrepreneurial spirit.

The National Automobile Museum is open Mon. – Sat. from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., and Sun. from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is $10 for adults, $8 for seniors and $4 for children 6 to 18 years.
