The popular multi-media event returns to captivate audiences with stories of “Wild Women of the West” at the Nevada Museum of Art
RENO, Nev. (Oct. 11, 2018) — The next event of the Reno Rodeo 100 Years 100 Stories series will take place on Saturday, Oct. 20 at the Nevada Museum of Art. The Reno Rodeo 100 project aims to collect, archive, and tell stories from Reno and throughout the region through photography, short films and live storytelling events.
“The Wild Women live storytelling event will explore stories and individuals that embody the cowgirl spirit,” said Jessi LeMay, producer of the Reno Rodeo 100 Years 100 Stories project. “Join us for tales of women who break the rules, follow their own trail and get the work done.”
Tickets are $12 for general admission, $8 for museum members and $5 for students.
The Reno Rodeo 100 Years 100 Stories project is a community partnership between the Reno Rodeo Association and the Reno Rodeo Foundation produced by Jessi LeMay, creator of The Folk & The Lore and sponsored by Save Mart. Funding, in part, provided by the City of Reno Arts & Culture Commission with support from Nevada Historical Society and the Nevada Museum of Art.
