Art in the Terminal

  • Repeated Refrains

    “Repeated Refrains” is the first public art commission in the airport, spanning the 450-foot soffit in the new Ticketing Hall. The creation of this Reno-Tahoe inspired piece comes from the artistic vision of nationally acclaimed artist Dixie Friend Gay, who shares, “Repeated Refrains celebrates Reno’s diverse native environment. It’s an immersive invitation to delve into the natural beauty of the Reno area.”

  • Giant Slalom

    The “Giant Slalom” bronze sculpture, inspired by the Reno-Tahoe region, welcomes millions of travelers to RNO each year. Dedicated to the airport on February 29, 1996, it became the centerpiece of the main terminal in November 2012. The sculpture by Douglas Van Howd was created as a scholarship project for the University of Nevada, Reno, Ski Teams.
