Those attending the unveiling of the Main Street Art Park in Fernley on Aug. 7 had something for young and old alike, but mostly for the younger set, including a puppet show, art projects, aerialists and a chance to crawl on the desert tortoise and bottle cap gazebo artwork.
The evening featured music from Eric Anderson on keyboards and Joel Ackerson on guitar, both of Reno, who represent half of the Harden Colorways

In fact, so many tiles were produced for the Desert Tortoise artwork, with even homeschooled children involved, that a bench was produced on which the rest of the tiles were mounted, so all the childrens' mosaic artwork is displayed at the park, Hauenstein said.
Pantoja said the inspiration for his Desert Tortoise, on which Shapiro assisted and was the project director, was to make something for the community, "to make something the people would Adidas Duramo 6 Runner's World
"This is a tremendous addition to the city," Goodman said.
The unveiling ceremony at the park, across from the Fernley depot, began with remarks from Mayor LeRoy Goodman. It was followed by remarks from Tomas McCabe, executive director of the Black Rock Arts Foundation, from Crimson Rose, one of the founders of Burning Man and secretary of the BRAF, Eric Shapiro, a project manager, and Pan Pantoja, the artist of the Desert Tortoise work.
McCabe noted the Bottle cap Gazebo artwork features 75,000 discarded bottle caps that were smashed by hand (with a hammer), tiny holes were punched and it is strung together by wire. It was created by Max Poynton, Andrew Grinberg and 30 volunteers working six months, known as the Bottle cap Gang.
The other piece of art is the Rockspinner 6 created by Zachary Coffin. It features a 9 ton piece of rock that rotates on an axis and is engineered to spin easily. He said this is one of eight he has created and noted it involves "a lot of physics" so it can spin.
The artist selection process was anonymous, but it ended up that Pantoja, who was living in Fernley at the time, had his desert tortoise art idea chosen as the permanent art display. Pantoja said he drove all around the state looking for large rocks that would fit his design plan, especially to serve as the feet, since granite cannot be easily carved.
She said it breaks her heart when art from a show goes from the gallery to the studio, and this project allows the art to be presented to the public more.
band The Novelists. The program concluded with a second performance by two aerialists from The Siren Society of Reno, performing to the final song played by The Novelists.
The Main Street Art Park arose as a result of BRAF's "Big Art for Small Towns" program, with the art park in Fernley funded largely as a result of a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, so it came at no direct cost to the city of Fernley, except for some staff time.

However, although the climbing was allowed that night, the desert tortoise and gazebo are works of art and a sign was placed at the park that says they are for viewing only and "please do not climb."
to get a transformer and thanked others, including Bill Keever and city community development and public works staff and Leslieann Hayden, the city's grants administrator.
"It all came together fast," Goodman said, noting the involvement of the Fernley schools in the latter half of the school year for production of the mosaic tiles by Fernley schoolchildren.
Goodman noted a $73,000 grant from NEA was obtained and BRAF matched with a grant as well and the location on the Nevada Department of Transportation property was chosen, with staff and the parks committee working on the project.
The Rockspinner 6 artwork at the park, for example, has been displayed elsewhere and will now be on displayed at the park for about two years before being removed. The desert tortoise is the only permanent artwork there.
He said Fernley Community and Economic Development Director Mojra Hauenstein was closely involved and was "a bulldog in getting boulders from Storey County (Tahoe Reno Industrial Park)." He thanked NV Energy for helping Adidas Nmd Human Race Meaning
Pantoja was the final speaker, and he energetically recited a "Fortune Teller" poem and concluded saying, "I love you all keep creating."
"Thank you, Fernley, for taking the leap of faith," Rose said.
Goodman began telling that Fernley's involvement came after Councilman Roy Edgington and former Public Works director Fred Turnier attended a Stronger Harden Vol 1 Review Economies Together meeting a couple years ago. He said it featured a presentation by the Black Rock Arts Foundation, which had a model of the proposal and asked if anyone wanted to partner in the small towns project, and the Fernley representatives volunteered.
