The depARTures Gallery

RNO’s depARTure’s Gallery, located post-security, features rotating exhibits that entertain and inspire. Every 3-4 months, travelers can expect displays of all art forms from local and regional organizations and artists collectives that celebrate the cultural heritage and creative development of northern Nevada. The schedule also includes an annual Employee Art Show, sponsored by the National Arts Program, and a Burning Man-themed exhibit that aligns with the yearly event. The gallery was first launched in 2005, named the Connector Collections Gallery, and moved in 2013 to the C-Concourse hallway where rotating exhibits are visible to more and more travelers every year.
