Home Means Nevada

The Reno-Tahoe International Airport (RNO) and Nevada Arts Council (NAC) are displaying the beauty of Nevada with a Home Means Nevada exhibit in the depARTures Gallery.

The display, themed around Nevada’s state song of the same title, is a photography exhibit that echoes famous photographs and artwork from the late 1800s and early 1900s that helped spur protections for places like Yellowstone, Yosemite, and the Grand Canyon. 

Nevada is a place of inspiration for the photographers who find beauty in her rugged geology and starry skies. This show features 15 photographers and highlights some of the unique treasures found on federally managed lands across the state, from bighorns to Burning Man, to the ancient rock art and petroglyphs in the Gold Butte area. 

The exhibition will be on display through January 2024.
