February Walkabout

"Lincoln" mosaic by Beniamino Bufano
Please join us for the first bi-monthly BigCrow Reno Walkabout, on Friday, February 12, 2016. In honor of Lincoln's Birthday, we'll see some Lincoln portraits and raise a toast to the 16th US President, who proclaimed Nevada as the 36th state to join the Union, on October 31, 1864.

It'll go something like this (all times approximate): 

2pm- Meet up in the Basement of the old post office at 50 S. Virginia St. We'll do some sketching at the big communal tables in the common area near Rawbry & Global Coffee. (Enter through the door on the right of the loading dock on S. Center Street. Then go down the stairs.) Bring your own art supplies. Or just come hang out with those of us who will be drawing.

3pm - We walk across the street to see the  Joe C. Rocks show at the Sierra Gallery in the  historic Riverside Hotel, home to Reno's artist live-work lofts.

4pm - We walk 4 blocks to Arte Italia (Flint & California) to see the Benjamin Bufano show, where we'll see a beautiful mosaic portrait of Lincoln. 

5pm - We cross the street to the 1864 Tavern, at 290 California Ave., at Humboldt Street. We'll hang out in the comfy seating areas, talk about all we've seen, order some libations (imaginative cocktails and fresh juices) and maybe we'll get a pizza delivered. Plus - sa second Lincoln portrait is in residence there.

Feel free to join us at any point in the evening - there is no fee for participation other than purchasing your own refreshments.
